At any ocean, I miss other oceans.

Hundreds of sand dollars
We are at the beach.
We have collected ninety-three sand dollars.
The ocean here in Pismo has coughed up many sand dollars all along the beach.
If the sand dollars were money, all of us here on the Central Coast would be millionaires.
I remember collecting shells in Maine.
The Pacific Ocean has a low sweet salty dune smell.
The smell of the Pacific Ocean is strong and briny, heavy thick and wild.
I miss the Maine coastline and the shells, tide pools.
I miss Greece and the Aegean Sea.
At any ocean, I miss other oceans.
