The Beach

Sechelt beach, from the pier

A beach is not only a sweep of sand,
but shells of sea creatures,
the sea glass, the seaweed,

the incongruous objects
washed up by the ocean.

There Goes August


Flying off like a bird heading south.
Not to be seen again until a new year emerges.
Goodbye August, goodbye summer.
See you next year.

Red Sun In The Morning

Red Sun in the morning

Two mornings ago, this is how the sun looked through the trees from forest fires in BC.

Today it was clear again and the air smells fresh and safe.

One Golden Plum

Our whole golden plum crop –
one golden plum.
We shared it
and it tasted divine.

Just Being Happy

Just Being Happy

Happily ever after was a fairy tale
I so much wanted to live in.
But n
ow  happy is
in spite of what I don’t like,
overlooking what I can’t change,
making do with what I have,
not hoping for more.
Just being happy.
