Tour de force of Nature by Annabel Sheila


May 19, 2013 by northerncardinalreview

Dusk approaches and a roaring tide settles into the bay
Leaving no trace of the rocky shore
Seagulls rise above the rippling surface
Their lively melodies catching briny breezes

As night begins to fall, beside the wharf
Fishing boats that sat on the ocean floor
Awaiting the return of the sea
Have risen once again to sit beside the quay

And next morning in dawn’s early light
An astonishing scene
The sea has once again retreated
As though it were never there

A tour de force of nature
The magnificent Bay of Fundy Tide
Where the surreal
Is real

Annabel Sheila grew up beside beautiful Bay St. George in Stephenville, Newfoundland, but now calls Moncton, New Brunswick home where she lives with her soul mate and three pets.  When she’s not spending time with her precious family, she can be found in a quiet corner with quill in hand. Eternally inspired to write about nature, the ocean, love, and life, she warmly embraces her muse’s gentle nudge.

    Beautifully penned. And I know the exact spot in Fundy where you see this phenomenon.
