Quadrille: All That Glitters

two smiling whippets striding out across the tidal sands under a blue sky
a smiling blue and white whippet and a smiling black whippet striding out across the tidal sands

this summer blessed with sun
we walked ten miles and talked
of shorelines and geology
beyond amazed what has become
our tidal land, plucked from
desert, sea and glacier
we’re grateful time has brought us near
our gentle surf and all that glitters here

Thank you for all your good wishes before we went on our Summer break, it’s lovely to be back!

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday with love

    Wonderful quadrille. Your photos are so clear and true to life that I almost feel like I could reach in and give your Beauties a good petting and hug. πŸ™‚ ❀

  2. Expanse of Beach Panorama
    No Dunes to Hide Hurricane
    Ivan took away the Height From
    Beach Now New Horizon is Flat and
    Never Ends a Circle of Life.. Waves
    Continue And spread shore lines spiral
    in and out i dance on shores in Deep Sand
    Floating Spiraling Following Seagull Wings
    as Shore Line Spirals Match Human Trails of my Feet
    FLaMeS BeLoW What Are We
    NoW A HuWoMaNiFeSTaTioN
    of ABoVE Within Inside Outside
    All Around We Are Beach i am HoME..:)
