9.27.2021 – see beach with kids eyes

see beach with kids eyes
wider, wetter, sandier
flatter than I see

For me much of the fun of being at the beach is watching little kids.

Little kids who can see nothing but the openness, the WIDE openness of the beach and the ocean.

What would you do?

I can tell you what they do.

They act like kids.

Careless kids.

Not kids being careless.

But kids who could care less.

Kids who are without a care.

What a way to be.

For the eyes of kids.

Part of a series based on an afternoon spent at the beach on Hilton Head Island.

I wanted to see if I would be ‘inspired’ by what I saw, by what I heard, by what I smelled, by what I tasted, what I felt emotionally and what I felt tactilely.

Some turned out okay.

Some were too forced.

Some were just bad.

Some did involve some or all of those feelings.

As far as it goes, I guess I was inspired by by what I saw, by what I heard, by what I smelled, by what I tasted, what I felt emotionally and what I felt tactilely.
