I try to give words
To the sounds I hear
At this beach.

My vocabulary
It fails me.

How do I describe the continuous rumble
Of approaching waves
the sound of rising water
Falling against water
The higher the wave
the louder the sound
Tiny waves with their plop
Waves against rocks
Waves against sound
So many sounds
Not enough words.

But Pick up a conch
And place it to your ear
You may hear the sounds
From the beach here.
