poet's platform

Tom has built a new beach seat; an observation platform with uninterrupted views to the wave.  Pivotal decisions will be make along its wooden length.  Board size, wind direction, crowd dynamics, village politics, food shortages, power supply and flight schedules.

The seat from last season suffered at the might of the wet season.  Wood rot, pigs and kids led to its final collapse.  This year’s version is longer, stronger and repositioned to capitalize on shade and comfort.  There is time here to talk. To reflect, discuss, debate and share. To listen.  There are few external pressures to cut short a symposium. The changing tide, eager watermen and breakfast.
