Walking on the beach today
The wind is in my face. It gives
Me such a chill. The sun keeps
Me warm though, along
With my hood.
The waves they sound like roaring
Lions as they roll into the shore.
There is a piping plover dodging
Waves as it tries to get some food.
He runs away, then goes back towards
The water. It is like a dance he is performing.
It makes me laugh to watch.
I see many shapes and forms as I walk
The beach. The rocks take on such
Characters as shadow faces, shark fins
In the sand. A giant triangular rock that
Looks like dinosaur tooth.
As I walk I talk with my daughter Nicole.
I know she is following me in her spirit form.
I ask her to help me find some heart shaped
Rocks. Of course i find two. Thanks Nicole
I say to her, now help to keep me warm.
I kept finding feathers along the way, she
Always loved bird feathers. It is just her way of
Telling me she is still following me.
I turn around now, to head back to my car.
The tide is now much lower than when I arrived.
The wind is now at my back and I am feeling so
Much warmer. Now there are many foot prints
to follow back to my car. There are a few dogs
Frolicking around. More people are coming to
Walk the beach right now. The afternoon is
Beginning, as I get closer to where I began.
I sit in my car to warm myself up and view
pictures I took.
Now it is time to head on home to have some
Nice hot chocolate. I love the beach so very
Much I can’t imagine life without it. Maybe
Someday I will live closer to the beach. Then
The place I love to be at, won’t be so out of reach.
