Crab

_20200629_003451

Small red crab

Swimming in a rock pool

Waiting for the tide

To wash you into the sea.

Little legs paddling,

Scuttling sideways.

Sneaking past the gulls

To find your true love.

Barnacles surround you,

Seaweed lashes you.

Waves crash over you,

Still you scuttle

Creeping along the strand,

Till round a rock face,

You meet her…

And you both swim

Into the sunset.
