Superstitious

Initials carved
on a tree
in the sand

silent cries
begging
witness?

Mortal eyes
only offer
indifference

Signals then,
to a sentient being,
nature-sourced

an ancient longing,
indefinable,
unquenchable

Tides erase,
time distorts –
no telling

what response
will be achieved –
a superstitious quest.
