Princesses, Puppy dogs, and Rag Dolls

Greater than the magic of fairytales
Is a simpler
More beautiful enchantment
When once upon a time
Comes with every sunrise

Here’s a realm
Where every little girl
Is a princess
Holding court
Over puppy dogs
And rag dolls

With her maids
And maidens
Explores a wonderland
Of salt spray
Sea shells
And hermit crabs

While the ocean
Stretches out
Beyond the horizon
Of imagination

Solemn Wonder, Long Beach, Pacific Rim National Park, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Solemn Wonders

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
