On My Mind

stone and sky

Wood, stone,
sky, sand,
what you are telling
without words,
resists trust in time,
a soundless
story. The sea
mouths and foams
your grapple with rust
and air.

Love those photos! Those old groynes have so much character!

Fabulous pictures, I see a face on the close up of the groyne.

I love the poem too.

(I'm afraid to say more.)

Your other posts seem to have met oblivion, as I'm back at the 'Harbour' post of long ago. I'm frustrated at Blogger FOR you.

Be well, Kay.

I love wild beaches like this. I enjoyed the poem too. "The sea mouths and foams" is really vivid.

Clocking Out

 I have been neglecting this blog for some months. I think perhaps I should face facts and accept that it is indeed time to retire this blog...
