Tides - an original poem for Poetry Friday

Today, an original poem. It's from a collection of children's poems about the moon. It is a very small poem, but I like it.

by Kelly R. Fineman

The moon’s pull, gravitational,
draws the tide to shore.
It lingers, meditational,
then goes out once more.

Kiva - loans that change lives

I like it, too.....

You're reminding me of Douglas Florian with your inspired rhyme: gravitational/meditational. LOVE IT!

I like the thought that meditation is part of the tide coming in and going out.

Beth: Thank you so much.

Mary Lee: Any comparison to Douglas Florian is high praise indeed. Thanks!

Yat-Yee: The tide feels meditative to me. I love watching the waves, and try to get to the shore a few times a year just to do that.
