Bleak Beach

It's a bleak beach today...

Even the lighthouse looks cold
like strong peppermint

Lattice work sky
Crocodile back,
mauve and blue,

Flecks of peach
Set off
A white-whipped crust

Walk on pearly crunch
Shells, specks spat out


Children on swings talk,
the universal child

Peeling back the silence,
compliments the waves

Virginia's waves wash up,
crash, roll and shimmy
along the shore

A haphazard hem gives chase

A childhood writ in words of water -

Minds blown
Toys tossed

A bleak beach indeed
