Photo of Bimini Beach

Rosalyn Marhatta

Stripes of summer
layer a lavender sky
on blond sand;
a hermit crab
seeking shelter
in a torn paper cup
peeks out from a corner
of the frame.

A red plastic shovel
scratched and scraped
from a child’s digging
into melting crystals of glass
stands in the middle
of a sand castle
half lost to ocean blues.
