Black Dog and Me

16 May
we that are playing on the beach of the sea
on mountains of yellow sun-baked sand
the run with the dog on this blue sky day
the skittering crabs crane claws digging in
wet feet are splashing the waves climbing land
a floating white sea bird tilts toward fish
sand dollars are drying, conch shells shining glass
the black dog and me pad a lightning bolt dash
