always saying goodbye always saying hello

August 17, 2007

with each wave
these last moments
bathe our consciousness

there was nothing else…

(but jobs are waiting)

put the tiny shells
in your pockets
I tell the boys

so the big ones won’t crush them.

two buddies –
they are eleven
never to be eleven again.

the breeze hides my tears.

    Glad you reposted it. I hadn’t found your excellent blog last summer.

    The scientifically impossible I do right away
    The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer

    thank you ClapSo!

    BTW: If only I had a Coca Cola and some Fritos at that moment in time, it would have been so much more poignant… Oh well…
