i spent a lot of time as a young teen, by myself, at the beach in Winter. i loved the endless flat Long Island Sound, and the silver and blue and gray of it.


i walk along the beach
kicking up pebbles
a gull above the trees
a flash of white
time stands still in the sky
the winter sun
a lamp above the sea
shines in the blue

white waves along the shore
voice of the ocean
the sound of waves that fall
on sandy beach
a light snow starts to fall
a chill, a breeze
i look out on the white
and silver sea

alone, i walked this path
a lonely child
took comfort in this vast
and empty world
a sky that never ends
a tiny bird
i fly above the world
on wings of song
