life’s a beach…

even when the sun’s not shiningIMG_0665_2maggie and milly and molly and may
went down to the beach (to play one day)
and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn’t remember her troubles, and
milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were
and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles and
may come home with a smooth rounded stone
as small as a world and as big as alone.
for whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it is always ourselves we find in the sea. 
― E.E. Cummings

    • Never desolate. It’s a really beautiful beach even on cloudy or stormy days. I don’t always wander down there at high tide, though. But it’s beautiful from up on the bluffs, looking down.
