|It is wonderful for me when I take the swing back into an AD portfolio, to see the writings that I had to miss. It's like we are drivers of our vehicles and must keep our eyes on the road (our daily doings), but savor the slack in traffic that allows us to look out the side windows at all there is to see. I am glad I chose this one of yours because it is glorious, Morgan. From the 'child's nick-name,' so musical and intimate, to the visual of little feet, flaming in their eagerness, there is a wonderland of glances out side windows in this poem. "....tiny windy sandy..." would be so lessened by the dropping of any one of those three words. "....bunnies..." instead of rabbits presents endearment to that species. "...tall flirty grass," those three words combine with the tiny child to offer action observed of wind, motion, laughing child. Then to use 'crystal' instead of sand enlivens a natural element with magic. "....seashells spill secrets" THOSE three words conjur up for the reader a personal experience of holding shells to ears, and there aren't many people who do not know that sensation. You even enlivened fog! Your final line leaves salt on the tongue, waves breaking both distant and close and seagull voices in the air. So the facial expression this brings from me is a relaxed smile, wide open ears, nose, eyes and mind. Thanks. This poem beautifully expresses why humans love the ocean. ~~ Diana|

|This so reminds me of a day at the beach when my daughter was little to see them enjoy the sand, sea, waves and yes even jumping from one foot to the other on the hot sand....love it.
|Reviewed by Vesper Darby
|a treat indeed! i read something delightful like this and have all this curiosity and visions on what small creature, view, thoughts might have inspired your words.
were you sitting on this beach...was it a sand crab scitteling back to his safe cool hole...was it the sea grass tickling your legs...maybe watching little kids hopping on tip toe over the hot sand to the edge of the water. what fun these
imaginings (thataword?) inspired by this wonderful piece.

seashells and secrets, and love the tenderness
and energy that run through
