Ceded Life

Gregory A. Kompes

Rocks emerge at waterīs edge
annals scoring winds
searing days, tumultuous seas
history sculpted crags.

Seasons pass, regress
ocean waves chisel
undulate, swell, surge
lapsed time fades.

Cold and heat chip change
each spell transforms, amends
differences appear, subtle;
Extreme over eons.

Lives the same lived
if deeper delved, still
fight and fortune, this one filled
evolutionīs forced return.
