Diamond Beach Walk

Calmness of the dawn greets,

soft breezes mellow the mind;

terns floating aloft;

bubbles in the newly submerged sand;

sand crabs scampering into secret hideouts.


A lonesome fisherman

casting into the surf;

wicker creel empty, lifted by the surf.

Jogger leaving ephemeral footprints,

decomposed by indefatigable tides.


Sun-filled brightness aloft;

azure sky luring us to tranquility.

Joining hands with my soulmate,

remembering another diamond beach -

fifty-five years ago . . . with a ring.
