Easter weekend on Cape Cod, walking on a windy beach, the sun shining in your face. It can’t get much better than this!
Patterns on the Beach
Shapes that look like fish bones
Pressed into the wet sand
The impressions of undulating waves
A thumbprint of the sea.
I walk along the ocean’s edge
at Long Nook Beach and try not to get my shoes wet.
It’s too cold to take them off.
The wind at the top of the cliffs is strong
Strong enough to lift a parasail glider and suspend him
High above the beach with the tall cliffs at his back.
We admire him and the view he must have
Looking down on the sand bars and rippling water below
Seeing from a distance
the water’s patterns in the sand.
