When the Door Closes

My secret life as a poet, writer, photographer…



Last week I hiked on a whim,
choosing a trail just above the sea.
I passed gulls gossiping like old men
and jumped crags deeper than a tall me
while the wind capered across the water
and light danced about the waves with glee.
Diverted, I worried the journey would end too soon,
but on rounding the bend, I found eternity.

San Diego Coastline

Rippling down the coast
in blues and grays, the ocean
laps on sandy shores
today, tomorrow, and so
on to perpetuity.

K – Kayak


The red kayak floated calmly

on the blue green waters of the sea,Red Kayak

at peace for once today – finally! no one’s

sitting inside. The ceaseless duns

are over! At least for now. Tomorrow,

someone will come and sink the keel low.

But, at this moment, weightless and free,

the red kayak was in tranquility.
