Beachcombers

 
Forget our misspent youths. 
Slough off all those years we wasted
locked up in concrete castles
overlooking city
streets.
Let’s vow
to squander our old age
in a shanty by the sea; just be beach-
combers in a bungalow, taking our days slow-
ly; buffeted by wind and waves, we’ll delight
in driftwood, scour the sand for tiny treasures
(seashells & beach glass tumbled by time)
and skip like stones on the water,
until the final tide
washes us
away.

  1. Oh, MY! You KNOW this mermaid girl loooooves this!
    That hyphen at "slow-ly" (slow,lee) turns it into both slow, and sheltered. Wonderful.
