I was approached by a fellow poet friend of mine who had an idea for a story brewing in his head.
He asked if I would be willing to work with him to bring his story to life as it were. I agreed and this is the resulting story. His ideas, my words: reworked to capture his vision. The poem herein is all his though. Mr. Waters’ poetry is what drew me to him…it is my hope you are drawn to appreciate his creativity as well.

They came from the sea.
I was in a hurry as I made my way through the thinning fog. The chill fingers of winter still held sway in the early morning hours before dawn. Shadows crawled as late night patrons of the village tavern were expelled for the night. Like regurgitated flotsam upon the shore, they spew out of the dimly lit haven of their own solace, but I paid no attention to such things. I had other more pressing concerns, even desires urging me on, toward the pier.
