When I was a kid we went to the beach almost every day during the summer. We had a large family (9 kids!), and it was cheap entertainment. Sometimes a rainstorm would sweep in at the end of the day. We’d go find cover until the storm passed…and then we had the beach pretty much to ourselves.



Scavengers

By the end of the storm
almost everyone has left.

The sand feels cool and muddy
with a million tiny rain craters.

I hear the low voice of waves
and the raucous sound of birds.

Hundreds of gulls have descended
onto the deserted beach to claim

a bonanza of soggy french fries,
crusts, cookies, apple cores.

The beach will stay empty
except for these birds and us,

happy to scavenge the leftover
scraps from this summer day.

  1. This brought back some of my own childhood memories of the beach.

  2. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
