Picture of the Day
June 22, 2020

fresh water mill
                        creek meets rising tide at salish sea
how much
of life do you
want to let in?


sitting on a stony
shore, rough sand,
the Salish sea seeps

up through porous
beach, round rocks,
grains so coarse

my ass gets soaked
even before the rising
tide reaches my toes

and so it goes
with the world
out your window

—no matter how
much you'd like
to keep it at bay

it gets you in the
end as you look
the wrong way
