Uprooted

Seen and unseen

Featured: The sand stretching north towards the beyond. The ocean crashing against the shore in a symphony of give and take, give and take, give and take. The welcoming sky bluing as the sun heads higher upwards. The sound of the gulls, the soft but rough sand, the salt in the air. My curls dancing around my neck in the humidity.

Not featured: the two nuns in full habits who stopped to wish us good morning. The pod of dolphins that stretched across the horizon. The seagull that holds a fish head in his beak every day. The big black lab in the blue collar who rolled in the sand. Mom saving horseshoe crabs from sudden death. The tiny stones and rocks under my sore but happy feet.
