Life is a Beach

Bahia Honda State Park, Big Pine Key, FL
Life is a beach
Waves relentlessly
Driving us forward.
We urgently rush
To stop it,
Or avoid it,
Or push it back.
Some play games
And ride the waves.
Others paddle
Going nowhere.
Until nowhere
Becomes our
New somewhere.
And once again,
We strive against
The inevitable tide
'Til we break through,
Or broken,
But driven

I hope you enjoyed this tidbit. It was written while on vacation at St. George Island, FL, and offers a glimpse into the mind of this dreamer.

The picture was taken several years later on my first trip to the Florida Keys.
