Facing the Sea

Profile

In the photo she

allows me to share, her face

turns toward the sea.


Sea Lion Caves

We watch sea lions

from behind the rail. Splashing.

Feeding. Barking. Loud.


Photograph

I asked her to turn

away from me, face the sun,

the sea, find her light.

    I love the reality in your words…children have a special pull on our hearts…we trudge with fear
