reflections from lumaha’i

Joining dVerse Poets for a mirrored reflection “through the looking glass.”




through hours’ glass

abrasive sands of time

etching faces

scratching hearts

collecting bits of

life memories

crushed on reefs

hurtled on beaches

worn down


movement of tide

high and low surf

swelling tears

foaming doubts

leaving behind

glassy mirror

washed shores

smoothed surf

shine on

    Agreed, lynn! Sand as an element was subjected to lots of ‘knocks-about’ and changes before emerging as the familiar sand

    Nice photo with deep blue colors. I liked this phrase “abrasive sands of time” and the ending with the “glassy mirror”.

    I hear you, some days I feel like i’ve been crushed on the reef and hurdled on to the beach. Your story is vibrant and recalls well the turbulence of life and the beauty that this process creates.

    So many appealingly callous and violent forces that contribute to our readiness. Our shine. And what a beautiful photo, Lynn!

    What a lovely place, love the mirror in the soft sand…
