A trip to the Beach and Poetry...


We took a trip to Huntington
Beach State Park this afternoon.  For more pictures, please go to our TWO HAPPY blog site where I have posted some very colorful ones.  Hubby had been in the house so much except for doc appointments and it was so good for us both to escape for awhile.  While there we took pictures and I wrote a poem...

Huntington Beach 5/30/2011
      by Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart

Under a sprawling Cedar tree
We found a place for us to be
In shade and fragrance we abide
While relishing nature on every side.
The Brown Pelicans overhead as they glide
   Just above the gentle waves...

We sat here 21 yrs. ago
The day before Hurricane Hugo.
I was crocheting under the trees
And you took pictures while
    enjoying the breeze
And we had no idea the storm
....was brewing over the sea!

But here we are again today
Almost in the same old place
And I love you even more
As I gaze upon your weathered face
And I think how blessed we both are
   to be in this beautiful place.
Remember all the Servicemen who are keeping us safe and all of those who have given their life to make our nation free.  Send a card or a package or just an encouraging card to someone who is far away and missing home is hard....

My heart to yours...

Oh Kerrie Sweetie...
How beautiful is this poem today, and your write. I love to come and see what you have found within you on each trip you take. Isn't it amazing what we seem to find hiding within us? Then given the moment and time that is perfect, it just spills out lovingly for all.

Thank you for sharing my precious friend. I love it when you do. Hugs to you and Bill. I am off to see your photos that you have to share of your beautiful day together.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry
