One Single Impression: Friend



From July 9, 2012
What tie binds
Like shared hunger?

Sea birds come to the child,
Who tosses crumbs into the air
At the pier

Where every other day
They fish,
Laugh
And scatter shadows

As they fly away.
One Single Impression

  3. What a beautiful picture you painted with these words Sandy. I would love to spend the day with you dining and scouring the beach for tidbits of interest to feed our curiosity.

  13. Can’t help but think of "Jonathon Livingstone Seagull" after reading this post.

    I can’t imagine you have not read this book - and if not, I think you should seek it out!
