Jake and Phoebe at Ocean Park

Photo taken by my daughter Roo May 29, 2016

Hand in hand

across the dune,

two friends set out

for the beach.

Sun warms their calves,

turns her hair to gold.

As usual,

my grandson has a plan.

His shoulders square,

arms swing wide,

bold steps aim

at the big blue.

This is what we do

at the beach:

Walk and talk

about this and that.

Each generation shines

brighter than the last,

more inclined

to make everything up.

As if we were the first

to scamper

on little bare feet

toward forever.
