Souvenir from REFLECT WITH ME: Summer Serenity



In anticipation of the unveiling of my new gallery collection of REFLECT WITH ME: Summer Serenity in late August, I decided to provide a sneak preview. Various writers have accepted my invitation to capture their summer go-to spots for quiet meditation, relaxation, or enjoyment in photographs accompanied by their poetic thoughts. Today, I created a poem for Poetry Friday based on photographs taken at two different beaches, one on the East Coast of the United States and the other on the West Coast. This is my teaser for the new gallery. 

I have always been captivated by the beauty of the beach and intrigued by driftwood washed ashore. On one of my summer jaunts to Long Beach on the south shore of Long Island I found an interesting piece of driftwood in the sand. Later, as I was perusing some travel photos taken by daughter when she traveled to the state of Washington with her husband, I found a photo of a collection of driftwood cast on to Ruby Beach.
