Spirit Rift – Collaboration

Sand grains massage our feet, Waves hit our ankles, toppling our sandcastles No, we’re not sad, but we’re definitely a little salty, Literally — our toes watered, sand-drenched-deep In the warmth of mother earth’s caress — Absorbing all that we can sea Past the sun-kissed vanishing point To us, the Sun sets how it rises; […]

Hatch
