Evolution of a Beach Walk

I’m late

but not too.

Missed the first peek,

the holy moment of illumined darkness,

of marvel at the reality

of that already experienced

by those on the other side

of our big blue home.

A pod of dolphins wave

as harbinger baitfish

make the ocean’s surface

pop like corn.

Pelicans swoop,

battle ready

for breakfast a’ la aqua.

Cirrus clouds stripe the sky,

giant cumulus cotton bolls

darken the midway

then part

as air masses move, 

allowing radiance to emerge.

Brightness brushes

my skin with warmth.

Coquina hearts wait

and aren’t disappointed

when I find them

right on time.
