Ocean Froth



wild waves
mortar and pestle
pound for pound
converting stones
and shells
to golden sand

with artistic chic
saltine sprays
designer glaze
on sunglasses
spreads glitter
on driftless wood




Original Watercolor, Shells and Bones

3) Awesome watercolor.

Oh, what a lovely poem - makes me want to head down to the beach! (I live very close to the Pacific, but don't go visit the ocean nearly often enough.) And the watercolor is gorgeous, too.

Going to the beach on Saturday--makes me wish I were there now

You are quickly becoming another favorite of mine to visit because you are so gifted. You put words on the page from your heart and the watercolor is beautiful, as always. Thanks for sharing.

Good night

Your words ARE from your heart. Beautiful. Simply. The best kind.

I can sum your work up with one word: evocative.

Welcome to 3 Word Wednesday :)

You really put me at the beach, hearing the waves, getting salt all over my skin.
