Two pair of feet
On Cannon Beach

Rolling surf
White foam scudding along

Coastal river
Stirred by wind rush

Blowing sand
Eddying around ankles

Hail pounding
On toes and laces

Chill wind creeping
Against ankles and up cuffs.

Snow on sand
Mixes with each step

Footfalls silenced
By the clamor of the sea

Steps carve out
Crescents in the sand

Toes point to tree line as
Storm’s voice thunders

Soles warmed at fireside
At coastal end of day

Ken Goree

Another poem from Cannon Beach, February 2011
