Transience

Across this tremendous expanse of
White-powder sand
What bitten logs have collected
And odd rubber-thongs
A water-damaged book jacket —
Detritus people and time
Have left behind
When it is cold nobody comes

But I happen to

Wandering down the open, inviting path
Hoping my footprints will trace out
A pattern that could make the
Neatened paper-coat fly back
Like fluttering wings to clothe the naked book
Clogs sail to rejoin their halves and
Logs leap upright into the ground
Where trees again stand

  3. Just wonderful. I felt like I was walking on the beach with You….we go in the winter now and again to a very empty beach…it was exactly like that….and then You took this crazy beautiful turn in the end….like watching You spin off dancing down the sand. Magic. Thank You!!! 🤗
