Storybook cream puff clouds Playfully glide across the blue ribbon bay Bouncing off one another Playing hide and seek between the bulges of the islands Fishing trawler motors slowly into the harbor Engine grumbling toward the dock Tangled nets and a multitude of lines Attracting hungry seagulls with the promise of the remains of a … Continue reading
