a final playful tumble

morning breeze
coming in the window
surf sounds (C) Jane Reichhold
invading sleep natures alarm
salty cleansing breath starts new day

Wonder & Spy

spying on the ants
exploring the peony
always a wonder

Taken at Riis Beach

in midsummer heat
crashing waves spew salty sprays
a most welcome mist
