On Ocean Grove beach
a Cross atop a sand dune
is a seagull’s perch

We just returned from a lovely long weekend away in Ocean Grove, NJ, especially to attend the 60th Annual Choir Festival. What a joy! joy! joy! More than 600 singers participated in the glorious presentation. While out for a stroll on the boardwalk, I snapped the above photo, knowing it would be the perfect accompaniment to this little haiku, which is one of the poems in my newest chapbook, "God's Square Mile--Poems about Ocean Grove". Ordering information appears at the very end of this website.
