Life Is Good
by: Karl Stewart 12/23/2010
sun is up
though hard to tell
light fog hanging low
looking out over the water
I see waves gently lapping
the rocks of the jetty
sitting, listening, being
enjoying the sights and sounds
of life on the waterfront
closing my eyes
i can hear the waves
slowly advancing and retreating
the wind blowing rigging
on the boats moored nearby
the pitiful cries of gulls
looking for a scrap to eat
barking from the sea lions
laying on the buoy
damp chill
too cool for shirtsleeves
salt smell in the air
occasional odor of fish
wind is freshening
boat is rocking
life is good
