we are explorers

We are explorers spinning across ombred sand
Given the token of dusty pastel skies
Hands twirling and blocking the shadows
The shadows of fences that strain in soft sand
Undulating across the beaches length

We sleep easy after screaming from our hide and seek spots
And watching the great whales slip sadly beneath sheets of blue
Gather white blankets close and close our eyes

We wake up here and the world is a newborn baby
Bedroom curtains swaying in a silent dance
On and on the mechanical water rolls in and collapses then is pulled back
Sameness stretches on from the window

Ships on the Horizon-Brazilian Girls



Our friends have a tiny green book that they call the Fire Island Flame in which each guest draw a little drawing or write a little note.

Everything looks beautiful. Looksl ike you had a fun trip.

I have friends who are vegetarian and during barbaques we make them grilled pineapple. It's actually pretty good when done right. You should try it some time.

I love the pictures! I want to go somewhere tropical for vacation so badly. I need sand between my toes and the sound of crashing waves in my ears. :)

And I want a pair of sandals like that! I have yet to find a decent pair, though. :/ Glad you had a great time!
