pray, work, clean, love, truth

elders educate the young

fierce, hard, well, deep, tough

laze, lounge, park by sea

open essence, overdue

surf side skin drinks deep

quench spirit, dye aura hue

erect peace attach to spine

beasts abound landscapes

stretch tendons showcase trained brawn

Soft guarded shelter

designed devotion, refuge

erected aerie

take sure blessed contentment
