The Stealthie

Walking along the water’s edge

in my rumpled jeans

not the slightest care in the world

stealthie for a magazine

If the picture states

a thousand words

what does it say about me

is my spirit heard

Finding a shell

picking it up

hearing the ocean in my ear

a tiny universe closeup

Each crashing wave

speaks to my soul

does a picture record this

the story to be told

Walking along

the sun has begun to set

a thousand words being written

it’s not the end yet

Now in a dream

a new stealthie to be taken

the wonder of life

a miracle each day I awaken
