Join the gang!


By the sea

Like beached whales we stretch
wiggling sand-warmed toes
the breeze slaps hair onto briny lips
a waft of drying silver fish

sometimes the fingers reach
a seashell here, and there
a shard of spilled laughter

  1. Nice usage of the word "shard" to describe laughter right after you mention seashells.
