Every summer since I’ve been married, we’ve gone on a beach trip. I can think of nothing better than relaxing in the sun or having fun in the waves, but this collection starts few weeks before the actual trip, highlighting a few of the other good parts of summer: rainstorms, daydreaming, and a screened porch.

On this beach trip, you’ll find a trip to the aquarium, a pool daze, and even a little homesickness. And although there is usually a little despair at the end of the week, a beach trip can serve as a reset. Or even the start of a new direction.


Below are a few of the poems included in the work:

  • We Could Have This (Every Day of Summer)
  • Saturday Afternoon Car Wash
  • Petrichor
  • A New Elixir
  • Beach Music
