Surf Sounds

The water was cold but the night was warm
Walking the beach always calmed my soul
Phosphorus danced in the ankle deep surf
And lit up my white linen pants
That was rolled up to my tanned shin

Three Times a Lady was playing softly from the dunes

Two concealed lovers giggled as I walked past
My mood lightened and I allowed myself a smile
Remembering she left that afternoon
I stopped and imagined a plane dissolve into the stars
Heaviness returned and a breeze chilled my wet bare feet

Startled when Brick House blared, I started back

Haiku 13

Sand covered my face
Tumbling on the white warm beach
Clowning as I rolled
