‘Each New Wave’ a poem by Valerie Parks

Hi Fauzia;
I’m looking forward to your book launch this Sunday. I wish you every success…
I have stolen a line from your book ‘Skeena’ (Each new wave tests the river bank) to write a poem…

Each new wave
Valerie Parks

Each new wave
tests the river bank,
eventually washes it away.
I will not be washed away
by the whim of life’s
winds and waves.
I am a dike.
Although assailed
I stand firm.
I will not be breached.
