the jetty


on the jetty
searching
treasures


small body wedged
reaching
grasping


odds and ends
this and that
washed in with the tide
ocean lovelies


sea creatures foreign 
to desert dwellers
ready to pinch


thrilled with this find
the rest used as bait


reminders everywhere
of His beauty
the smell, the sound
the briney feel


to search the jetty
to love the ocean
to remember Heavenly Father
to embrace each other

we are found

I love oceans,
and searching for treasures,
It's why i like to go for walks I think.

and your smile lights up the monitor, my morning,
my heart!

You know, I was at the ocean last week and it was a gift from the Father. Such a gift. I brought home four Japanese fishing floats. Oh, yes. I am happy with my treasures.
