In the dusty morning
When the stars are yawning
And stretching and closing their eyes
I go alone out thinking and humming And sometimes just walking
With the sleepy dawning tide

The sand is cold
Sending shivers up my barefoot feet
The beach is as new
As a Christmas present just unwrapped
With no more footprints
Than a concrete street

And sometimes I stop
Like a slowly spinning lighthouse light
I try to pierce the dark
To see whatís out there in the night
But thatís all I ever see Ė
The night

A kind of empty quiet
All wet and warm
Like an old fisherman
Just puffing and waiting
And looking back
To see what will come
With the light

Thatís when I stop humming
And start walking and start thinking
Maybe I know the reason for the night
And why the tide I go walking with works so hard
To leave the beach a clean slate
Before the light

Great portrait painted, Larry. Love and peace. Regis

Brilliant, Larry! You have drawn us such a clear picture! Ohhhh, I've got a great picture in my image library for this - A picture of an older fisherman in all his wet weather gear, caught in a quiet, reflective moment as he draws on his long stemmed pipe in the half light. An exceptional write with a PERFECT conclusion!

like this very much, but i tripped over your "barefoot feet." excellent view of the sand before you, liked to concrete without footprints. you came full circle with this piece.
