A Rainy Day Walk: SOLC 2019 Day 6

 

lrg_dsc01980-1

After the school day ended

and my flock of third graders scurried out the door

taking flight

to this activity and that

I alight on my usual perch

and descend

to the beach

for my rainy day walk

Raindrops and salty sea mist

run rivers down my face

as I breathe in and out

matching inhales with strides

dodging (sometimes unsuccessfully)

pools of sea water

Further down the beach

I find another flock

and they squawk welcome

then like my third graders

scurry and stretch their wings

flying into a rainy afternoon

    This was lovely! I especially like the comparison between the kids and the birds in the photo. This is one of the things I love about the SOL challenge–getting to see and experience life in other places through the eyes of others. A beach walk feels far from snow-covered Indiana right now!
