Left: “Well, Right. He’s left us on the sand”.
Right: “Right”. “But, this Lambert’s Cove Beach is neat”.

Over the large dune
The pale, pasty Vineyard newbie went
Slathered in sunscreen
Schlepping stuff.

Left: “Got his New York Times. Maureen Dowd fan.
Right: “Yeah. And a low rider beach chair”.
Left: “Check the cheap Chilmark Flea Market beach towel”.
Right: “Look at that tattered t-shirt with the Black Dog on it”.
Left: “And those baggy Brickman’s trunks”.
Right: “Oh no. His Dad’s floppy Tilly hat”.
Left: “This is really embarrassing. A newbie all Vineyarded out like that”.
Right: “Check out his cooler. Goodies in there”.
Left: “Yes! Yes!. Mini-six pack of Island brewed Offshore Ale”.
Right: “Lobster roll from Larsen’s Fish Market”.
Left: “Fresh picked fruit from the West Tisbury Farmer’s Market”.
Right: “Warm Scottish Bakehouse scones”.
Left: “A box of Chilmark Chocolates”.
Right: “Does he want to take Adrianne on a trip?”
Left: “Don’t know. We saw him in Bunch of Grapes buying that David McCullough book ‘The Greatest Journey. Americans in Paris’ ”.
Right: “Look his ear buds are in”.
Left: “IPod jamming to Johnny Hoy & the Bluefish?”.
Right: “Maybe Carly Simon”.
Left: “I’m sweating here in the sun”.
Right: “Can’t wait to get back to the old white house”.
Left: “Hey! No politics!”

Martha’s Vineyard. “Lost In The Rhythm Of The Sea”

Martha’s Vineyard

Through Harold’s Lens:

Please start the sounds first, as you are enjoying the images and words.
You will receive the full sensual experience of this story.

Cozy & bundled
Nestled in arms
In loved-worn sweaters
Over tattered college sweats.

She with Chardonnay
Me with Merlot.

Rhythm of the sea

Buns nestled
In warm mounds of sand.

Heads nestled
In suntanned shoulders.

Toes nestled
In loose grains of gold.

Rhythm of the sea

We had danced
To pounding surf.

We had kissed
To splashing waves.

We had loved
To glows of orange and red.

Rhythm of the sea

Warm love between us
Deep love growing
Memories of a tender island summer
Moments of a chilly early fall.

Rhythm of the sea

All is quiet now
Only sounds of surf
Only stars in skies
Only moon beams crossing waves.

Rhythm of the sea

She off to Wellesley
Me off to Stanford
2500 miles of dirt
Hearts sagging
Tears rolling.

Rhythm of the sea

Grapes gone
Sunset black

Rhythm of the sea
