Crabby today…

January 5, 2017

The beach empties except for a few seagulls.

A crab flirts with the idea of testing the sand.

He changes his mind.

The surf gently carries him away.

A breeze touches my bare feet, reminding me that I am here in search of treasure.

Which way do I go?

Towards the rocks or to the little lighthouse on the other side of the dunes?

I see a boy who is gazing into the sky.

He lifts a finger to determine the wind’s direction…

He takes off and soon his kite drifts aloft.

The wind is steady… let’s go fly a kite! He says.
