6 march

me and sally walk the beach

they walked the beach of a morn

and came upon the semblance of a sail

a fellow voyager had built upon the beach

with two sticks

as if to say...


you too can sail upon the sea this day

upon the sea of dreams

open your heart

and set your compass for a distant shore


  1. This had to have been done, by children.

    Lucky children...

    To have this beautiful rugged coast line, on which to play...

    And to dream...


  2. a beach a beach my kingdom for a beach
    I love finding remnants of those who have gone before
    I often leave things myself and wonder who will find them

  10. So lovely!

  11. What an interesting find - I love walking the beach looking for whatever nature has left behind.

  12. My compass is set, but I think I'll linger for a short while to catch the sea breeze and listen for a sea gull or two.

  13. A lovely find to enter your mind and make you sing your song.

  14. Setting one's compass is such a strong gestures.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
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
