Sea breeze.

Gulls cry above.

Waves softly rolling,

Covering footprints in the sand.


Sights and sounds delight weary soul,

Seeking tranquility,

Refreshing life,


Butterfly Cinquain

“Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”  Jesus–Matthew 6:26–6:28-29
