Evening and Beachy

Westering light, slant shadows

All about.

The shore is gritty and wet.

Foaming, with salty driftwood

And rocks shaping to be pebbles.

Ground one against another

Too smooth too whole.

The years ahead will

Bring them to mix

And be with sand.

And walkers, long shore drifting

Meet at the edge of the earth

And sea.

Toe dipping travellers

Who cope by seeing

Where Mare and Terra Firma


They are two weekly recharged

And thereafter winkle picked,

Good for another year.

Day +2
