This is a poem I entered quite some time ago, and then lost track of. It's a double tetractys, and I used the descending count (10 4 3 2 1) followed by the ascending one (1 2 3 4 10) to suggest the ebb between two wave surges.
The surf explodes upon black rugged rocks
a roaring beast
back to the sea,
marshalling rage to launch the next assault.
