1068. Self Redefinition

A creek flows
into the sea...its bank,
yesterday's sandbar.

Link with 1067: Beach.

[At the Pacific Rim Park on Vancouver Island there are lovely driftwood-strewn beaches. When we were last there I was fascinated by a creek flowing into the sea. It constantly redefined itself as its banks eroded in the sand and the course of the stream kept changing. But, of course, it all got "wiped clean" again at the next high tide.]

Dear Vaughn, your poem is a very good example for Heraclitus' aphorism "Panta Rhei: everything flows and nothing is left unchanged".

neighbours's son~
his eyes...
unchanged

Thank you!
