Morning Haze

through the morning haze
comes the rhythm of the waves –
gulls prance on smooth sand

Soar & Wait

after a short wait
seagull soars with prize in beak
he digs for clams like
the old man with the bucket
on the beach at sundown

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

Fairies

riding edge of waves
young fairies trapped in bubbles
freed on sandy shore
