Like a deep, damp cave

Like a lifeless hole

Like darkness swallowing me
Like a stone carving

Like an extremely large crevice in the tree

Like a mythical place for forming fantasies

Like cavern offering coolness and  shade on a hot day






Hermit crabs peeking out of their shells

The excited chattering of children finding interesting tide pool animals

The fresh scent of the salty water as it crashes against rocks

The cold sharp air blowing and stinging my face

The smooth round rocks I hold onto so as to not slip






                                                       

The dark red bark

Sharp pointy leaves

The cool air blowing on my face

The fresh scent of bay laurel leaves

Woodpeckers swiftly pecking at trees
