Kaloli Point

Spungy pine needles
Sink beneath my feet
Round beach leaves
 Wooden cones
Peer up beside fallen stars

Trees don't leave their post
They just gather with the leaves
Who scatter here
Along this coast
They lie above the pounding surf
Where turtles rise
To catch their breath
From mossy shells
Ocean swells~

This was an unexpected I took this series with my cell because I forgot my camera..I guess it worked?

Wow! You took those photos with your cell phone? Those are fantastic. I love the poem too. It made me think of sponginess beneath my feet when walking on pine needles in the forest.

Oh my! These are wonderful!! I was going to say I liked your poem better than the pictures, but they just keep getting better and better each one I see!!! The last several are outstanding, the way you've done the light!!! The three before the turtle, WOW!!!! Your poem is great too. This is one of your prettiest and best posts!! I'm glad I'm going to bed now with this in my head, sweet dreams for sure!!!

I especially like...
Where turtles rise
To catch their breath
From mossy shells
Ocean swells~

It has the rhythm of the surf and the feeling of those ancient turtles lifting their heads to exhale. Magical photo of the big guy in water,

The tree photos also have a mystical prehistoric appearance. I like them very much, especially the sepia treatment.
