Time…

Time…
Ebbs and flows 
like ocean tides
 
Never measured the
same…
minute to minute…
second to second…
 
There is a loneliness 
Listening…
Watching…
as waves wash ashore
like a water metronome
 
Waves keeping time
the beat of my heart
the tune of my life
without words
 
Living on the margins 
as the Universe 
continues to measure
my life…
my Time…

Pink Magic!

Pink Magic!

Pink…
Shining on the 
inside
 
Rough…
A rugged spiral
on the outside
 
A beautiful 
conch shell
displayed for
all to see
 
My eyes wide
with wonder as
my grandmother
held it to my ear
 
“What is it!”
I asked in amazement.
 
“The sound of 
the sea Baby Girl,”
she replied.
 
Not allowed to 
touch it alone
at first…
That pink conch
began my life long
love affair with the sea
 
My grandmother
is long dead
Yet…
Still when I
close my eyes
I am taken back
to childhood 
And…
I hear the sea
 
I wonder what 
happened to that
wonderful
Pink Magic…

Water Baby

Sun-kissed
cheeks and nose
 
Bronzed skin
Summer hair
 
A water baby
drawn to the sea
 
White sand
Blue Water
 
Soul Saving…

Return to the Sea

Return to the Sea

Standing knee deep
in the surf
the tidal currents
playing around
my lower legs…
at times leaving
my feet bare and
dragging sand
through my toes
sinking my bare
feet deeper with
every pulse
 
My heart beat
matches the rhythm
of the sea
Beating in time
with each wave
that washes
ashore
 
The full moon 
worships as it
matches the
 ebbing and
flowing tides
 
We are the Sea…
Saltwater covered
with skin
 
I stand still
feeling the pull
of the Sea
breathing…
beating…
becoming…
One with the 
Sea

Sea Treasures

Easy morning walk
Dawn on the beach
 
Gulls fighting over
scraps in the sand
 
Lacy drifts of seaweed
Decorate the high tide’s edge
 
Our dogs race ahead
chasing sea birds
they can never catch
 
Your hand in mine
Strolling peacefully
 
Eyes searching for
Sea treasures the
night has delivered

Summer Memories

Walking through wild sea oats

at Dawn

Over the dunes

And…

There it was…

My very first

glimpse of

the Ocean

Brilliant blue water

White sugar sand

Unblemished beach

That summer of

1963 was

the Best ever

Now the wild sea oats

are only a memory

The dunes are gone

Beach access limited

Houses, condos and

Hotels blocking the way

A tourist clutter beach

and all their “baggage”

Ruining the previously

unspoiled beauty

with

“Progress”

At least my childhood

Memories are there

And

When anyone says

the word Beach

that is what comes

to mind…

Brilliant Blue Water

White Sugar Sand

Wild Sea Oats

Unblemished Beaches

Ebb Tide

Ebb Tide

Ebb Tide

That time of 

DAY

In between 

High and Low

When secrets and mysteries

Are often revealed

As life continues to unfold
