Sun awakens above

the duneland trees

Quiet solitude

in a beach chair

staring far and wide

in between pages

of “The Prayer of Nehemiah”

Imagining what’s next

having no desire

for sailing far from shore

loving the safety and solitude

staring far and wide

imagining Jesus

sailing this way

to  speak and touch

Sun beginning to warm

while a dog walks his master

and children echo running

beach chairs arriving

it’s time to head for home.
