By the sea, a fixture held a lot of memories
like a sponge taking it all in silence
resistant to the strong waves of the sea
secured like a boat tied to a dock

It had withheld years of tempest
like a thief in the night
creating havoc without preamble
proved to be a stronghold for sea critters

One can truly admire its grit
like a courageous soldier
standing upright amidst misfortunes
despite being left in solitude
