From where I was standing,
I saw beauty everywhere.
The gulls appeared to know me,
As if they recognized my stare.
My mind’s eye scanned the horizon,
Rousing dull shades into vibrant hues,
Into sapphire blues.
I traversed the mud and the trash.
I saw snowflakes and crystals,
As I watched the waves crash.
The storm the eve before,
Left puddles, wind, and freezing air…
But on the coast that morning,
Not a surfer,
Had a single care.
