Imagine growing up on beachfront property in the Puget Sound where the waves crash a hundred feet from your front door, the seagulls provide the morning wakeup call, and sea lions pop up their heads each day to check on you. Poems of the Point is a collection of poetry about growing up on the beach in Gig Harbor, Washington. The poems feature a walk down the beach in the company of the spirits of those who purchased the property, finding an eagle’s nest, childhood memories of boating and fishing for cod, searching for Lewis moon shells, picking cherries and raspberries, digging for clams and geoducks, spying orca in the Sound, and even a chance viewing of the illusive Mt. Rainier on a clear day. If a piece of your heart already lies in the Pacific Northwest or you are open to having your heart captured by it, this book of poetry is for you.
