Summery Sunny Sandy Beach

Sand soaks, seeps between

Summer-sunned toes as I walk

Up the sunlit beach


Seagull paradise

Dashing after food, swifter

Than my surprised hand


The moon and the waves

Crescents above and below

Nature intertwined.



The moon is hidden up in its little nest

Half-noticed in the blue sky

The sun goes down behind the hills for nighttime,

But the moon stays put to watch the day pass by

It is a white shadow,

A visible secret,

A curious little sibling

Soft and pale it sits in its perch and smiles

How often it is overlooked, though it is closest to us

But a feather from the mighty wing

Blue Moon

Blue for sadness, that Summer has left

and her whispers reach out to us, to tell us that she has gone,

gone to an unreachable place

Blue for Icy Wind that will move in and bite and snap at your heels

Blue for a silent happiness that Autumn has arrived,

that we are no longer in Summer’s trance

Blue moon as Mother Nature’s gift for this season shift
