We had a wonderful three-day mini-break up-Island in May, all Covid protocols followed:
masks, social distancing etc., with sun, wind, kites …


the beach stretches
to distant horizon

a faint line of waves
breaks on far sand

a couple with their dog
at the tide-line

I watch crabs scuttle
into the shade of pebbles

small cone-shaped shells
rock to their movement

a thread of seaweed stirs
the sky flickers
in a tide-pool
