I awoke to summons from Fran to come see the 6am sunrise

with a boy who’s thoughts I wish I could read.

A boy that positively LOVES his new rash guard bathing suit with SPF 50

” I’m a real surfer dude now!”

A surfer dude that still likes to build sand castles with his mama

and chase seagulls that GORGE on

stranded clams on the shore.

And who reminds me around 4pm that it is time to go for our nightly walk.

Just he and I, hand in hand we walk down to the shore to say good night.

Until tomorrow, when we start  it all over.
