Sunrise Trail - Poem

Sunny sky

Crystals of blue ocean water

Low tide

Sulfur smell lingers with salt


Rugosa Roses

White and pink with garters of morning glories

Their smell

Mixed with the tidal stink


They complement each other-salt and sweet.


The growth

A tangle of primrose, dock, vetch


It’s smell a calming haze


A turtle

Shovels through a tidal stream

Her shell

The same brown color as the beach


Six crows

Rise slowly from a billowing elm tree

They float-wings still


By nothing but belief



A distant memory


At its peak


The memory of one makes the other more sweet.
