Calm & Wild

I love the sound of waves clamoring ashore. I find myself wondering how many oceans they’ve crossed to get here. They come ashore with such
passion. And fade back out with such sense of accomplishment. The sound and the wind clear the cobwebs from my head. I always feel renewed.

 

as ocean claims shore
tucked in waves wild abandon
a noteworthy calm

Pink & Shell

 

 

 

a distant echo

in the language of the sea

from my pink conch shell

Sugar & Spice

butterfly’s flutter
whispers of sugar and spice –
buzz of bumble bee

honeysuckle’s heady scent
beckons both naughty and nice

Mirror & Harbor

a mirror image
the pair of swans off the pier –
a gliding tango
never far from each other
together a safe harbor
