What does the coast mean to you?

What does the coast mean to you. Please submit your thoughts. Now is the time to protect our coast from the draft LCP submittted by the County that has loopholes for developers you can drive a semi through…….our coast is OUR coast and is not a profit center. 
Sand crabs tossed
by the Scorpio full moon
and waves to cliffs.
In the swash, on the shore,
bits and pieces.
Gray shells, antennae, eyes,
picked over by seagulls
who flap their wings on the river
into the simplicity of air.
Families wrapped
in blankets sit protected
from wind and cold
behind driftwood.
Wind and cold, sea and fog
heal in a world gone wild.
