Poetry Friday: Beachcombers


Thatched umbrellas
lift their skirts
as the tide sweeps close
about their thin legs
perched in the sand.

Lorie Ann Grover, 2009

The roundup is at Big A Little a!

I love what you've done with the personification--the image I have is of a very ladylike type lifting her full (late 19th or early 20th century?) skirts. (Maybe I'm channeling Kate Chopin.)

I WANT this beach--without all the chairs :)
