“A Walk Along the Beach” by Bradley Lester

We walked along the beach, upon the sandy shore
Our footprints made a path, which disappeared behind
A symbol of our journey, the good times and the bad
We looked ahead and walked, your hand in mine so kind

The waves were crashing noises, forcing us to look
At natures powerful creature, each wave a testing sight
That tides could come and go, and wash away a land
Our love will keep the tempest, at bay with all its might

The seagulls screeched above, unpleasantly at times
They fought amongst themselves, like scavengers they were
Perhaps the outside forces, are similar as such
They’ll try to make as part at times, and shed a many tear

But as we walk we notice, the waves begin to cease
The seagulls are behind us now, the wind no longer there
I think we’ve passed the bad time, our steps begin to slow
We hold on tight and focus hard, our hands entwined we care

Dan and I wanted to thank the Killingworth Library in Killingworth, Connecticut for providing a “Meet and Greet” for Dan this past Saturday at the library. Tammy did a wonderful job, and we so enjoyed ourselves. The exhibit will be on display throughout the month of September, and any paintings that are purchased will have a portion of the proceeds donated to the library. We are setting up another event for 2014, and already excited about it. Lovely library and a great staff there…please check it out and let us know what you thought.
