'nother nice day

I'm gonna tell ya about it later but in the meantime, read this


Two stones
Standing in the sea
They watch each other as the tide flows out
They watch as the tide flows in
Ebb and flow
The boats, the birds, the fish
Flow east, then west
Water rises and falls on thier skirts of seaweed
Sometimes, when the fog closes in,
And they are all alone,
They dance
Swaying ebb
Swaying flow
Bowing, swaying, reaching out for each other
Neap and flood
They dance

You were spot on with the Rock Poetry comment. I had forgotten your poem was "about" sea stacks. It certainly stands tall alongside my ROCK HARD FRENCH KISS, and Alex's OBJECT LESSON. Thanks for sharing, again.

"skirts of seaweed."

Thank you.

And what's a sea stack?

It's a big rock pile in the ocean.
Like those pictures in Glenn's post.
