This anthology of beach-related poems is for readers who find themselves thinking-or wishing they could think-poetical thoughts while listening to or watching the interplay of water with land. Whether it be ocean-side or lake-side, sandy or pebbled, the beach can be a place of contemplation, reminding us of things both bigger and smaller than ourselves. Many of the poets you'll recognize, some you may not, but whatever your mood, they've written a poem to suit, an image to inspire, and perhaps a reminder to find your own unique voice within.
One house. Two people in need. One winter night, a young runaway, Kelli, stumbled onto the porch of an oceanfront cottage. The woman who lived there, Margie, took her in and gave her the gifts of safety and security. Twelve years later, Margie dies. Kelli continues living at the cottage until the day the woman's nephew arrives for a Christmas visit and intends to stay. Dylan has been on the road for many years. He calls himself a traveler, but he's tired of always being on the move. When he arrives at his aunt's home, he learns that she has died. Who has the better claim? And how far will Kelli go to keep the house that has become her home?
The Beach A Collection of Short Stories is a work of literary fiction.
