27 July

every evening

i hear their screen door whack behind them 

as they walk the beach together 
in the shallow of the waves
holding hands 

 battered and blasted by the thrills 

where they have dabbled

they stand in the moonlight



finger by finger

they unfold their gift 
and offer it to the universe

two stained hearts 
 in one hallowed center

once i thought that we were lost

now i know the universe

reveals itself

when raindrops fall on summer pavement




  1. I love it! Simple and nice pastels!


  2. Ahhhh. That photo just drew me in. I've been having a bit of beach withdrawal today anyhow {I'm in landlocked KY} and that photo spoke to my heart. And the poem ... sweetness itself.

  3. Soft, gentle, full of love and understanding. Your words make a place worth visiting,


  4. How well you colored your poem with such beautiful words so that the reader could picture the scene so well.

  5. What a beautiful piece - the part that sang out to me was 'two stained hearts in one hallowed centre'..there is a contentment and acceptance in that place i feel

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
