Waves, Long Beach, Pacific Rim National Park, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada II
The wave rolls and rolls and rolls
Having crested well out to sea
Up the long, shallow beach
Never with much force

Foamy leading edge
Losing momentum

Energy fading

It hangs



A moment

Then fades

Receding again
Gaining momentum

Leaving in its path a
Shining patina on sand
Awaiting the incoming wave
Already bound for the tide line
