25 April

walking the beach of a morning

i found spring stealing across the Atlantic

she lighted up the sandy shore

with her coquettish  and quicksilver promises

and though I am well experienced

with her capricious ways

I allow her easy access 

to my cold heart

and twirl with the

greenness of young girl once again

as flighty spring

sparkles and dances over the cool water

and as i turn toward home 

I  feel the wind rustling the leaves at my feet

and I know 

she but toys with me


  1. ~ and toy she does indeed here in New England.

  2. Beautiful find and dito words!

  3. That photo of the beach is ... well, beyond awesome! I'd put it on canvas and hang it on a wall. Love the words and yes ... the sea and the weather are fickle.

  4. Lovely personification of spring. She has settled down and settled in here on my coast.

  5. Oh how your words and images speak to me.....being a coastal dweller myself, I'm drawn to the beach.

  6. Wonderful photos and as always such beautiful words !
    Enjoy the weekend,

  7. She does toy with us! I do hope you find weeds in your yard soon. :)

  8. Great finds. Love the beach!

  9. Beautiful shell!

  10. Gorgeous pictures and a wonderful blog!
    Thanks so much for you visit and your kind words!

  11. So in love with this photo and your poem! What a great find ...for me!

Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
