Carpe Diem Summer Challenge 2019 + The Tuesday Platform: Beachcomber


missing the malls
on the ocean beach
she gathers shells
what is there to miss in malls?
beaches are so much better

high tide
the beach leaves a mark
in her book
she will always remember
this new home away from home

afternoon wind
all the beachcomber's words
blown out to sea
words written on the shoreline
she hopes that he could see them

cold beach walk
on sun-warmed car seats
two sweatshirts
one for her, one for her son
the one who means everything

a special beach
I put a pebble in my mouth
before leaving
wishing to taste the ocean
one last time before going

smelling the light
on her tanned shoulder
home from the beach
this home away from her home
in her memory always

~Jane & Cie~



Notes:
The Hokku of these Renga were written by Jane Reichhold (1937 - 2016). The Ageku were created by me.
The sum total is a story poem about Pepper Baiij, the protagonist in Team Netherworld's long-running WIP, Fetch. These story poems help keep the WIPs we aren't able to work on as much alive.
