Heart of the beach

as the warm 
water soaks, permeates
saturating, moistening the life

snuggling deep
inside the little shells
lying on a bed of shifting sands

i take them 
in the palm of my hand
marveling at their virgin beauty..

      5. Lady Yasmin, no one must come near my pasta. An aubergine base, a little grated cheese, sprinkling of black pepper and simple penne pasta was the meal I’ve just had far too much off – I’ll be out running again tomorrow. I have a pet bumble bee (Harry), although he’s out collecting nectar at the moment, and Merlin let’s me talk deep thoughts with his owl on Thursday’s. I’d like another dog soon – the dog bit is a serious wish.

      6. You must let Harry the bee sting you if you go near the edge of the cliff, you need someone to keep an eye on you, my Lord, I would love a telepathy meeting with M’s owl , is that possible. Oh yes, you need a dog to run with you, he will keep tabs on you, how soon will you have soon, and what breed do you prefer?

      7. My old dog was a border collie. Maybe a rough and ready mongrel next time. Not too big; not too small. A telepathic conference with a wise owl would be something else. If I remember right Merlin’s owl was called Ambrose.

      8. Put me through to Ambrose, when you can. How are you this morning, Lord? cramps and all? Why mongrel? A German shepherd would do well too, oh well, as long as it keeps you off the cliffs.

      9. I believe that when all human beings become mongrels the world will have a better chance of peace because we’ll all be the same. After that all we’d need are the various religions to get their act together. I’ve often been called ‘mad’ for saying this, but I can’t help it. I never mean to offend. I like German Shepherds. I met one – a puppy – on top of the cliffs yesterday. His name was Jerry.

      10. Can’t we become something else, Lord Zoolon. I would like to become a bird and fly the sky. But why mongrel. And you ain’t mad , Jorg, sanest person I know, yeah .what was Jerry doing on top of the cliffs and what were you doing there, btw,?

      11. I often walk along the cliffs when I’m thinking of a new lyric or a melody. It’s peaceful and the cafe at the top serves really good hot chocolate. Why mongrel? I just think if the human race mixed more with each other and we all became the same colour – it doesn’t matter what colour that is, although I hope it wouldn’t be orange – then racists (I hate racists) wouldn’t have any reason to exist. What sort of bird would you become?

      12. Sounds so adventurous, can just picture you, sounds peaceful too, lol, Orange people with orange brains , sometimes I wonder why racists are racists , what is it that makes them so, and I really haven’t thought about what sort of bird I would become, I can only think of flying that high , and then maybe disappear into the Milky Way. I would also have the Milky Way hot chocolate and look down at the cliffs of Dover 😊

  2. Beautiful, but brings back a memory of a day at my local beach, total devastation, shells smashed, still had their occupant’s inside… dismembered starfish, some still alive… all manner of things I’ll post some not to gruesome photo’s.

      1. I’ve experienced many a bad storm, even a hurricane, but what happened on this occasion was unprecedented, in that this particular stretch of coastline, has no rocks at al,l right down to the load tide mark, and probably a good way beyond that. A relevant point, as sea anemones, seaweeds, and starfish are dependent on rocks for anchorage. In the case of the starfish for food, albeit they will scavenge out on sandy substrate. Hope I’ve not bored you?
