Beach Bird Bliss

6 Comments

This day, oh, this day…

shoved joy and gratitude in my face,

then tossed in beauty and just a touch of grace.

Piping Plover

A Piping Plover set my sorrows by the side,

nabbing morsels when it could,

then racing from the tide.

Junior Eagle

Junior Eagle perched proudly on his driftwood post,

with wind-blown feathers and orange socks,

landing there to remind me just what matters most.

Caspian Terns and Gulls Dance

Caspian Terns show grace is close at hand;

trading secrets with the poor plain seagull,

they hold potlucks and dances on the sand.

Crow fled the scene

The wind picked up and the sky began to grey,

dry sand raced across the beach,

then beautiful Crow and I fled the scene, calling it a day.

This day, oh, this day…

shoved joy and gratitude in my face,

then tossed in beauty and just  a touch of grace.

I took these pics yesterday on Bonge Beach & wrote the poem last night.

  1. I love this! Each day is special on this earth and we must enjoy what we have for those we have lost.

    • At least until the next day brings more #!&^%* and you have to start from scratch again. Boo hiss. BAD attitude. Ok, thanks for stopping by Sharon, I appreciate the comment too.

  2. Thank you for your poetry! I’ll be following you now.

  3. what a graceful poem, and observations. I am amazed at your knowledge of the bird population and use of the camera. You are my wonderful beach bum.
