Chincoteague Beach: A Love Story

Rate: 1 Flag

What agency, what mover, what angel lacquered this landscape?

The world smiles to have you at its center

The Ponies prance and quiver at your presence….

Standing on the playa, I hear the seabirds chatter

Misty, I love you even more.

Here we splash, far from home,

Sunning on the breeze-burnished beach at Chincoteague


The same sky glows above us

Our footprints in the sand will melt, tide-swept by the growling ocean—

Our pictures tell a pretty story

But we will never leave this place or question what it means:

A prelude to a loving journey,

Chasing warmer suns and brighter skies….
