A Thousand Scientific Facts
about the sea
Watch the mist-spray drift
towards the dunes:
A mother is out with
The daughter plays with
the dog breaking foam
And the little boy sits beside on a rock.
There are bluebottles along the shore today;
many cuttlefish shells;
a dead penguin, his flippers
laid out on the sand.
A few thoughts which originated during time at Silver Sands, Betty’s Bay circa April 2012.
