Beach day 🏖


I remember going to the beach
And how we stayed up all night packing
As if we were going for week

Loaded everything up in the car
Sans the kitchen sink on little to no sleep
Pulling out in the dark, yet it wasn’t far

Arriving while the tide was still high
The fog breathed heavy, fast asleep
As I shivered with blue and purple thighs

We set up camp at the waters edge
Wrapped in blankets waiting for the heat
Making a claim on premium stead

Holy fire 🔥🙏🔥


My eyes turn
To the ominous sky
As a plane drops
Out of sight

Wind whips tendrils
Against my face
Swirling thoughts
Fallen from grace

Birds flocking north
On erratic flights
Clouds of smoke
Rain, ashes white

Red is the sun
Blazing a trail of heat
Stamping out life
We desperately need
