01: discoveries on a walk

img_2174I’ve always meant to read the plaque that rests on the corner of Camino de la Costa in La Jolla (California). I finally stopped recently and discovered it had been the home of Raymond Chandler, the British-American novelist and screenwriter. What discoveries one can make while on a walk!

Bird Rock

Stones BalancePeaceful stones
upon cool, fresh beach
rushing to and fro
below my reach

This repetitive sound
I return to find
dark agate pebbles
dreams in my mind

Delicate, though rough
unique bird’s rock
rustling atop the sand
beneath seagulls of flock

They push to the ocean
the sea’s salty gravel
massaging my spirit
leaving less to unravel
