4 Oct: Tracking dVerse Quadrille

line drawing of beach scene

On the Beach

On that bright August day
I stood before the Atlantic
with its slow sloping depths

and cliffs and plateaus,
where deepest blues are
as black as a Merlin’s trick,

and as the sea delighted
my toes, I watched each
wave track along the sand.

  4. Sweet poem, Misky. In a cool coincidence, I was introduced to Midjourney last week, by my younger son. I created the image I’m using for Tourmaline’s Halloween Challenge banner. It’s an exciting way to create art, in collaboration with an AI program.

    Ah you are bringing me delightful memories of our beloved Provincetown!
