A collapsed sea cave,

Beaten blue by ocean waves.

I ask, did it hurt?

    One can think of it that nature is cruel (and it is, am I wrong?), But also that's the way how things evolve, gain their shape, and experience. We should withstand the pain. I wouldn't ask the cave if it hurt (it did), I'd offer my hand :)
