Log Page From Long Beach Island

“It is advisable to look from the tide pool to the stars and then back to the tide pool again.” –  John Steinbeck, The Log from the Sea of Cortez


Walking the tidal pool feels primeval – still

it’s today but hermit crabs, sea urchins,

sea squirts, baby sheepshead, spears and periwinkles

have ancient forms scuttling over my feet –

ghost crabs moving through time and space.
