On the beach, singing songs, feeding seagulls,
walking around in circles figuring hieroglyphics
in the sand with a stick weaving motions as waves
weave, crisscross on currents continually move
in or moving out taking my sand composed stories
with them. Conversations on beaches; a wind
returned from out on the bay, the pages
of a notebook flecked with sketches begun and
abandoned. And because you are relaxed; mirages
out there which you know you are part of when
the sun goes down a beach fire lit. Eyes over
the flames. Are they mine?

Finally, here is our (optional) daily prompt. Usually, we take inspiration from our craft resource, but since our resource is about revision, we’ll go a bit further afield for this one! Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem of simultaneity – in which multiple things are happing at once. A nice example might be Emily Dickinson’s “I heard a Fly buzz – when I died”, or this powerful poem by Sarah Green.
