new poetry

"View from the Beach"

Yellow canoe in the water
boys pretend
to be pirates or
arms painted
hats askew
rowing to an island
four boys moving quickly
across the pond
pretending to be men
on a Sunday afternoon.

Girl in the sand
wind blowing
mother watching
stirring, pouring
asking questions
girl in the sand
pink and red bathing suit
buckets and shovels kept busy
as sunset comes too soon.
