A Rengay poem about my favotite hangout.
Ocean breeze sooths my soul.
Pelican observes from pier.
Toes embrace warm sand.

         Sun comes up; sun goes down,
         living on island time.

She dances with surf,
pirouettes and dips for shells--
beachcombers’ ballet.

         Surf sailers perform
         with dolphins and gulls
         under blue canopy.

Romantic sunsets
wrap around our days.

         Cold beer and boiled shrimp
         puncutate a day of fun.
         What a life!
