Beach Peace

This poem was inspired by and the title coined by my dear friend JoAnn Beeh. Where can you find Beach Peace?

Beach Peace

JoAnn went to the coast
for a day of “Beach Peace.”
The rhythmic waves rolling in
moving the blue-gray and green depths.
The humm of ocean white-noise
as you sit in the forgiving sand.

How can I find beach peace
so far from an ocean?

I look around and see
the farmer racking hay
a green wave behind his rolling wheels
moving in rhythmic long strokes
over the summer field.

The cereal bowl in my hands
the steady crunch
the calming milk
the clink of spoon to bowl
with each little scoop.

The hummingbird sipping
from the feeder
her tininess
her flutter
as she dips into the sweet offering
again and again she visits
looking at me through the window
knowing me.
