Last Night’s Walk Along the Bay

Full Moon

Twenty Toes in the Sand
by Forest Sun

The frogs and the crickets sing
Of all the sadness and the joy love can bring
And the darkness gathers all around us
Mixed with the sound of the ocean

We’ve found our way
The best we can
Now here we are
Twenty toes in the sand
Arm and arm
Side by side
Sun going down with the tide

While the frogs and the crickets sing
Of all the sadness and the joy love can bring
And the darkness gathers all around us
Mixed with the sound of the ocean

As we walk home
No words between us
Just the soft black sky
And the echoes of our footsteps
The warm night air carries us this song
And our hearts can’t help singing along

As the frogs and the crickets sing
Of all the sadness and the joy love can bring
And the darkness gathers all around us
Mixed with the sound of the ocean

The frogs and the crickets sing
Of all the sadness and the joy love can bring
And the darkness gathers all around us
Mixed with the sound of the ocean

  1. Awesome!! You guys supply a lot of inspiration!
    Last night I went home to get my camera half way thru my walk to photograph some fascinating mushrooms–I don’t think I would have ever thought of doing that was I not rather regularly inspired by you all.
    Lovely lovely moon–is that dark room magic or a super magnification lens??? At any rate, I love it–and the poem–what imagery.

  2. Thanks Carolyn. The picture is just as I took it (well, I cropped it). We did have a zoom lens, but it’s not a very big zoom. The moon really looked like that.
    When do we get to see the mushroom pictures? (and the magnolia?)
