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

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.

Another magic moment in Ocean Grove.

ROLLING STONES:   “Waiting on a Friend.”

“A smile relieves a heart that grieves, remember what I said
I’m not waiting on a lady
I’m just waiting on a friend
I’m just waiting on a friend
Just waiting on a friend…”
