About the tide rises, the tide falls

we are that moment when waves topple over one another in their rush to the shore. we are that transformation from sea to foam. we are the tide rising, and we are the tide falling. in one word, we are oceanic.

but mostly, we are an online literary journal publishing poetry based off of, inspired by, and mimicking henry wadsworth longfellow's poem "the tide rises, the tide falls." unfortunately, literary magazines are, finanancially speaking, a sinking ship, and to keep our dream alive, we need your help in sustaining our website and giving us the ability to pay our contributors. 

we are literally making $0 right now T.T
