I took this image while on a writing retreat in Washington state’s Long Beach peninsula. The photograph captures the beauty of a misty beach, which speaks to us of the changing tides of life. The picture didn’t inspire the poem but illustrates it to perfection. Like several of my poems this one came to me as I gazed out a window into my garden. Such unsought inspiration brings with it a breath of divinity, which humbles an artist.
