Earth Magic


a chill, quiet morning
near the sea

the scent of salt water
and sea grasses



white clouds dancing
airy waltzes,
seagull dance band
playing a song

I sip my steaming spicy chai,
steam escaping through the vents
in my travel mug.

gravel lying atop the rough roadway
crunches under my feet.

I am alone
with all the glory of nature
for company.

Earth magic.

Oh man. Let's go!

Love your new avatar.

I love the new avatar, too. Beth (moredoors.blogspot.com) took one of my photos and played with it. That's the result. (Thanks Beth!)

The walk was so serene -- it was early enough that I didn't encounter anyone else and just listened to the lapping of the waves against the rocky beach and the cries of the sea birds. Pure heaven!
