Waterfall


Waterfall


Cold, ghostly, blue


Waterfall




Tide Pools

Crashing waves of the ocean

Splashing salt water in the distance

Morning fog brushing against my skin

The fragile shell of a hermit crab

The sandstone I am climbing on



Redwoods

Like the Eiffel Tower


Like a hug, waiting to be embraced


Like a spider hotel


Like a bottomless cup of light coffee


Like a telephone pole


Like a leaf cone


Like a sight waiting to be seen




Porcelain Crabs

 Porcelain crabs


Pink, afraid, cowardly


Porcelain crabs









Campfire

Campfire


Dancing, hot, red


Campfire










Banana slug and sea slug

Banana slug

Slimy, yellow

Decomposing,  unresisting, disgusting

Antennae, land, eyeless, water

Stopping, slowing, flowing

Stalky, bright

Sea slug







Sea anemone

Sea anemone


Sticky, bright, squishy

 

Sea anemone









Hermit Crab

Blue limbs, climbing on the new surface its shell is resting on


Little tickles, being reintroduced on and on


The smooth water brushing up against me


The salty water in the home of the crab

The cool air breathing on me
