Man and his Man

Man and his Man
Stand in the ocean
Where Squalls move fast
Angry
Intense
Sea ripped apart.

Man and his Man
Have braced
Against such tirades
Eons upon time.

Man and his Man
Stand apart from the land
Metamorphosed
By the gods.

Man and his Man
Beaten by waves
Battered by wind
Resilient to all.

Man and his Man
Never place for man.
Birds soar
Seals swim.

Man and his Man
Stand in the ocean
Sun shines
Peaceful
Waves lap as one
All is calm.

Man and his Man
Resplendent
Isolation.

Welcome Eva Marie and thanks for your comment. Man and his Man are two large rocks which stand off the north Cornish coast.
