Summer's Sandals

starstruck hibiscus garlands
decorating orange sandals
enhanced by windchimes’ breeze of the Spirit
surprised me with a burst of hope

sandals! icon of summer's freedom
symbol of discipleship’s unshod liberty:
wear sandals

La Jolla Cove on summer weeknights
De Anza Cove for Fridays
sprinkled by airborne mist
in the company of seagulls
treading sand, tripping across baptismal rocks
we follow the Rock and our Rock is Christ
who named Simon Rocky Peter
who names us friends and servants
