My sandy, driftwoody, bouldery
24 hours on the beach ~
run the colour spectrum
from soft muteds to rich exuberants
Right now I'm helping my new friend
who just happens to be ruddy red
offsetting the soft greys of the ocean and sky
the titch of baby blue streaks across in the distance
as the lone surfer waits patiently
(oh my they do have patience)
swooping past like aerial artistes
these birds dive-bomb
looking for insects
before heading south
Then from out of nowhere
grab your attention and draw you in even further.
More birds clamour for position
with lift off and landing gears
ready at any moment.
My life on the beach erupts into more JOY
than I could ever imagine
as the vibrancy of reds and oranges
reflect Mr. Orangie,
making it so much easier to see him
and to zero point snag him
I trot towards the sun
expecting but a brief moment of
"Ooohs and Aaaahs"
from the onlookers.
"Come on along!"
This is one of those times
that you can feel the colours
feel them coursing through your veins.
Thanks so again for putting up
with my DOODLE NONSENSE.
It does take plenty of us to make the world go 'round.
