TIDE AND TIME


Time is sifting through my hands
Salt and sugar colored sand
Cotton clouds, green bamboo,
Warm sky.  Ocean tastes so blue.


But not today
Today the sky is gray.
Cold hard trees
Are frozen in an icy breeze.
The only palms are on my hands
Reaching out to stop clear time
Running through the salty sand.

I would love to be on that beach!
Love your new header.
Yes, I'm doing holes but Buster isn't since it's all concrete around here!
I ended up getting a new camera (exactly the same as the old one the day it broke!)
Nikon Coolpix -tiny and serves my purposes.
Just finishing up Jane's next adventure.

I enjoyed your photos. The one in Wyoming reminds me why I don't mind travelling off-season.
