“It was many and many a year ago, 
         In a kingdom by the sea, 
   That a maiden there lived whom you may know 
         By the name of ANNABEL LEE; 
   And this maiden she lived with no other thought 
         Than to love and be loved by me.”

— from the poem, Annabel Lee, by Edgar Allen Poe

Walking On The Morning Beach

The herons cry, the sea gulls screech, 
In the graying light of dawn
I come upon a sandy form; 

And reaching down I almost toddle, 
Grasping it, it is a bottle, 
Caked with sea weed and with sand, 
It feels so cold within my hand; 

I brush the sand off the green glass, 
I almost drop it from my grasp; 
But seeing there’s a note within, 
I am intrigued by such a whim; 

I work the cork to pull it out, 
It’s glued within the tapered spout, 
I hold the bottle by the stock
And smash it on a sea side rock; 

I lift the paper from the shards, 
And open it, it is a card; 
It’s damp with algae and sea stained, 
It bears a cry, ‘Please love Elaine.’

For who on what isle so remote
Would send this missive, desperate note; 
To whom there’d be such chanced appeal; 
Above the sea gulls float and wheel; 

From what sandy strand or distant cove
Did she cast this treasure trove, 
An urgent cry from out the heart, 
But where to find her, where to start? 

And so I’m on the internet, 
As a path a better bet; 
To find the soul far out of reach, 
Who’s cry I found upon the beach. 

David McLansky

Virginia & Outer Banks 2013The North Carolina Outer Banks (OBX) at Duck — Images by kenne

The Outer Banks, North Carolina
Divide the ocean and the bay
Inviting, is this string of islands
Vacationers to come and play

Two hundred miles of pristine beaches
As far as any eye can see
Morning brings the perfect sunrise
On this land along the sea

The light house on Cape Hatteras
Guided many ships at night
The beaches outside Kitty Hawk
Saw the very first manned flight

The home to herds of feral ponies
Where the pirate Blackbeard died
English settled long ago
Still to this day they do reside

The climate always feels like summer
All along this eastern shore
Once you stop here for a visit
We know that you’ll come back for more

Tropical Storm Andrea Tried To Rain On Out Parade   2 comments

Duck Shoreline blogDuck, North Carolina Shoreline — iPhone image by kenne

Based on the forecast, we expected to be inside all day as tropical storm Andrea passed through, but about 11:00 p.m. the rained stopped and the clouds began to break up. This is one image taken on my iPhone to share now. Most of my images are one my D800.
