A Poem a Day 2015 (25): As the world moves on #MoP

It's Saturday, so today's poem has been written for the Month of Poetry Saturday Challenge ( 

The challenge is to write a poem playing with homophones - words sounding the same (and may be spelt the same), but which have a different meaning. For example, write/right, war/wore.

The added challenge was to write a Tetractys. I’d never heard of one, so I had to look it up. It’s a poetic form invented by Ray Stebbing, consisting of at least five lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 syllables (total of 20). Tetractys can also be reversed. I’ve written a double tetractys. Cheers.

As the world moves on

the sea
rising high
an endless sigh
a yawn upon the dawn; he stands and waves
waiting, his mind adrift on the blue waves
lost in her scent
his heart sent
he turns
