winter blues

winter blues
oh no, not the kind you might first imagine.
but the beautiful blue skies that contrast with winter whites
and the blue tinted light that appears at this time of year
and even my ski jacket
::: a season to remember :::
the 20-year storm
and many other epic days

she sells seashells by the sea shore

thinking back to last weekend
that long-awaited day at the beach
colorful seashells and beach umbrellas
azure waters and vibrant sunsets
dolphins swimming by and pelicans flying over
light breeze and warm sun on my skin
with a foot of snow in the forecast tonight, I am wishing I was still there


let the sun shine on
