SHORES

soprano, flute, alto sax, cello, guitar, marimba, piano

duration: 10 minutes            Denton, Texas      August 1983

sea breeze   searching shore line   brushing sunshine   sparkled surfaces   rusting reedy shore grass   combing for secrets   tossing seagulls skyward   drying driftwood in salty sand.

seek the slowly settling sun   search still the blackened waters   discover sounds of crashing breakers   touch smooth shapes of sleeping shores.
