I was leaving this lonely beach
and had no camera to capture it with.
So I stood for an infinity of seconds,
releasing the tethers of future and past
and opened wide the lens of my Eye.
What I saw in that silent moment
was a long, narrow white beach
empty and sparkling in the sunlight;
curving to a point at the diminishing horizon.
On my left were sugar-sand dunes, sloping
and irregular, covered with tall thin sea grass,
leaning lightly in the breeze.
On my right an expanse of shining ocean
tumbling and frothy at the shore-edge;
sparkling like cut crystal farther out.
And above it, not yet too high,
the soft morning sun a
shimmering gold blur in the sky.
