“Cross on the Auditorium floating in the late evening mist.” By Bob Bowné. Special to Blogfinger. Nov. 30, 2016. ©

“I dreamt we were standing
By the banks of the Thames
Where the cold grey waters ripple
In the misty morning light
Held a match to your cigarette
Watched the smoke curl in the mist
Your eyes, blue as the ocean between us
Smiling at me…”

THE  POGUES.  “Misty Morning, Albert Bridge.”   The Pogues were a Celtic punk band from London, popular in the 1980’s.

Beachfront Sunrise. By Paul Goldfinger. Ocean Grove. Blogfinger.net ©


Hi Paul:

Greetings from Manhattan. I was struck by your quietly beautiful photo, “Beachfront Sunrise,” (posted recently on Blogfinger), and your statement that you preferred sunrises to sunsets because “beginnings are happier than endings.”

Here is the poem, “Dawn,” from my 2008 collection, Father of Water.


Best wishes,

Charles Pierre

The first hint of morning on the ocean

is a trembling of shadows,


a dark hovering of muted tones

that moves with imperceptible pace,


a vanishing medium through which

the day brightens and widens,


the new light going on for miles and miles

in the shine of emerging surf.


BILL FRISELL. “Across the Universe.”

Hi Paul…
I caught some action down at the Shark River Inlet. The Army Corps of Engineers has started dredging the inlet…and this ship is vacuuming sand up off the river bed, filling itself up (low rider), and then, I think…taking it off the coast, dumping it and then coming back in for a little more sucking up!  I bet they found a few clams and an old sneaker or two down there. LOL. It was a raw windy day down on the ocean …but the beat goes on……..

From Porgy and Bess:

One of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing

And you’ll spread your wings and you’ll take to the sky

But ’til that morning, there ain’t nothin’ can harm you

With Daddy (Abercrombie) and Mammy (Fitch) standin’ by

EDDIE COCHRAN with the “Summertime Blues.”

By Bob Bowné. March 5, 2016. Sandy Hook., NJ.  Re-post. © Special to Blogfinger.

“Hi Paul…
Funny, I left the house at 5 a.m. to drive up to Sandy Hook to shoot the lighthouse today before the sun came up. I wanted the the lighthouse to be lit, so it had to be an early visit.

“Then later today I looked at the Blogfinger header photo, and if I am not mistaken, that would be the houses on the bay at Fort Hancock at the tip of Sandy Hook.

“Hopefully, that is the last vestiges of snow for us this year in the foreground! Enjoy.”

AMY WINEHOUSE:   (“Our Day Will Come” was a hit in 1963 with Ruby and the Romantics.  It is now part of the first Amy Winehouse posthumous album  Lioness: Hidden Treasures.)  

This song is a theme for Bob Bowné´s lovely interpretation of the Sandy Hook lighthouse.  Congratulations  Bob and thanks for sending us this gorgeous image.—-PG
