A Coconut on the Beach


Today I saw a coconut on the beach. At first I wasn’t sure what I saw amongst the seaweed in the shallow water close to the shore. I was bobbing along partially obscured by the waterline. It was dark maybe like the head of a sea turtle. Do sea turtles live in Puerto Rico? I’m not sure, but I would think that a sea turtle would attract a little bit more attention than this coconut was getting. So, discount the sea turtle. It finally washed ashore the spherical shape came into full view. It was now green and brown, gently rolling in and out with the waves. A young lady walked by, I’m not even sure that she glanced at it, that’s ok, I noticed the coconut on the beach. A larger wave just came in and swept the coconut back out into the water.
