there’s a small smooth stone

 in the corner

of The Hawk Portico


It looks like a Fig Newton


I found It on The Hawk Beach

when My Father was sick


wanted to give It to Him

for His Collection


but I never saw Him

    Jackie, yours is an astute comment which I value. Thank you so much and I have to thank you without sounding trite.
