By Chris and Teresa Jarmick
Pine tar, sea salt air
Rocks cackling at pier told fish tales
Droplet of rain as seagulls fly inland
Sunlight trickling over forest of restless waves
Breeze blows pregnant clouds onto shore
Sips coffee, swallows, buttons up jacket
Ocean hisses, buzz is ‘bad one’s comin’”
Hands shake goodbye, boardwalk, sidewalks empty
Black sky, lightning, thunder, downpour
Truck starts, rushing stream of water; then stillness
Poetry is Everything
