this is what it’s like in sunny California

what a smashing lifeguard

Bitter Fall Surf

P1010853

love lies bleeding in the dirt

I did not mean to hurt you

always seen it through before

this was just too far to reach

midnight solitary cold beach

black sand disconcerting

soon the hurting will end.

Barefoot Sand

Solitary Spirituality

Barefoot Sand

 

There is no soft sand

on my black beach

There is no brass band

to walk behind purple banners

They’re long gone

~

Uncaring, grey and cold

my northern sea

Broken, no longer bold

the people on my black beach

Coal dust not sand between my toes

yet I remember Lindisfarne

 ~

A murder of crows

a ruined abbey

delicate print of her toes

cascading laughter

disappears under the endlessly caressing tide

lindisfarne

Lindisfarne ~ the Holy Island
