Two hours before low water
the clam digger walks the pebbled beach and waits
clatter of rocks under each stride
eagles silhouetted against the morning sky
on the towering, sand-colored bluffs
the tide edges back slowly
exposing fist-sized rocks
red and veined with quartz
green rocks with speckles
look like eggs
the saltchuck laps at the last fringes of rock
till at last the sand beach begins to show
A magnificent scene, beautifully described.
Hi Mrs. Donachy,
It’s Ian from your sixth grade class from 2010. I hope you’re enjoying life in Alaska. I’m starting my Eagle Scout project and I remember you mentioned that Steelhead trout conservancy might have something I can do. Can you please remind me of the name of the organization?
P.S. The pictures look good!
what an amazing view across the water!!
