13.7 Billion Years
Every pencil of light
writes a thousand suns
under the white pines.
And children’s laughterkites the rays to treetops,around and aroundlike a fresh universe
expanding without a tail.
Time to get back to work. Thanks to everyone for the great writing and for comments and encouragement. And thanks to Sunset Beach for giving us all a great place to write. Happy Holidays to all.

Yes. That, and the rest of this, is such a great statement of faith in what we are struggling to do.

This has been a great place to write. I am so glad you came. I know so little about any of you IRL. Let me know if/when you have a collection and I'll gladly read it. I've started to do that recently, and I think it's a habit I want to keep up.

kites the rays to treetops,
around and around
like a fresh universe

expanding without a tail.

I think we've all been here, and it must be why we keep coming back.
so well voiced!

Another magnificent piece!
Kendall- I have so, so enjoyed reading your writing this month! You always delight and surprise me with the way you put words together. And of course the stories you tell always go to the heart. I hope we can write together again. April? Such great work!

Wow! "laughter/kites the rays to treetops". Going out with a beauty! So very like you to pack extraordinary imagery and language into a tiny tale. Aloha!

Yet another wonderful poem!

It's been great reading your poems this month and reading your comments.
Your writing is sincere, definitely from the gut! I've enjoyed that tremendously.
Have a wonderful holiday season.

Kendall, I am so glad you have become a Beach Bum.

Reading your poems is a lot more fun than creating marketing lit with you.

You are such a good writer, one remarkable poem after another. Thanks. And thanks for reading my poems too, and commenting.

Happy Holidays and hope to see you some one of these old days.
