Let’s throw our umbrellas

Watch them sink
between the ripples

Do you remember how
we used to trample their foam
when they were frothing
helpless on the shore ?

We watched them hanging on
to our sand castles
knocking them down
as they went

and we laughed
as they were dragged back

“They are just being themselves”, you said

What’s so different now ?
