Solemn Wonders

Solemn Wonder, Long Beach, Pacific Rim National Park, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
I share the long, shallow beach
With a few dozen souls
All of a demeanor
In their slow meander
Up and down the shoreline

Hands pocketed
Shoulders hunched
Voices hushed

They’re a beautiful sight
These denizens of stormy weather
There’s a strength
In their solemn wonder

Here where nature runs her course
Indifferent to the human presence
While the humans revel quietly
In hers
