Blue Peeled Paint

We had gone to North

Beach to clean up, as we went forth

I saw blue peeled paint all around

Until I viewed a swingset planted in the ground.

I wondered if it was from Hurricane Harvey or

From the roar

Of previous wind and rain.

I'd never know if it was from previous days or the storm's pain.

Families swam and played while tides were high.

Straws and bottlecaps galore , oh my!

There were only a few fronds to pick up,

But we did find bottle caps, wet socks, and a cup.

In a pond stood an egret

Looking peaceful and unaffected.

I hope there will be no more damage

To those who cannot manage.
