Patient As Nuns

Patient as nuns,
they sit,
through all the
of time.

Whether the apocalypse
comes, or not,
they will

I took a walk for Sanaa's prompt at Real Toads: to go for a walk, and see where our thoughts take us. I live in an area of surpassing beauty, so when I step out onto the beach, all worries fall away, and I mostly am thinking: "How beautiful!" But as I wandered, the peace and steadfastness of these rocks impressed me, and the above lines popped into my head. So I thought I would share them with you, along with some of the other photos. Enjoy!

Frank's Island

So much life, everywhere,

often growing in seemingly
impossible places

The happiest part of my walks
is meeting all the happy beach dogs.
This little sentinel was chilling,
guarding his humans,
who were chatting.
