Unstable Cliff

by Leo Cunningham

I stand there,
large as life.

sharp edged cliffs.

Piercing eyes watching a surfer’s freedom.
Feet stuck in the sand,
head in the clouds.

Beaten by the rough sea.
Chipping away slowly,
pieces of me.

I remain unmoved.

With a sign on top, labeled…
“Stand Back! Unstable Cliff!”
