100 acorns

scattered acorns 

carried home in the pockets of my skirts

we have been watching the waves crash against the cliffs of little Nahant

it's been stormy here on our rather tiny island

and will be stormier still over the weekend

piles of acorns on the bureau

hold me over till I can get outside and walk the wood again

 scrambling over the rocks on the path to the beach

with the wind against my cheeks and salty sea spray on my lips

wet sand clinging to my wellies

as I toss another pile of treasures onto the table


  1. It's that wonderful time of the year. Mother nature prepares her family for the riggers of winter and we are reminded we must prepare too. She even lets us participate! Have a wonderful weekend! Cathy

  2. Poetic picture and words!

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
