Your weekly slice of island life.


Hello Key Biscayne!

A couple of poems to round out the month, and that’s about it this week.

seaweed on the beach Key BiscayneNatural tourist control.

A few of you have chimed in about some road work and other projects happening around town. Sadly, we don’t have answers for those questions just yet, but maybe next week.

Good news for those of you who don’t like to read: this is another issue with no news at all. We can’t make it up, so enjoy the sleepy island.

Last ones

It’s the end of poetry month, so here’s the last two poems you all have sent in.

Bear Cut Bridge
is worn out.
through which we flow;
Public meetings take our pulse: body politic alive/well.


I feel gratitude
For being grounded
Loving hearts who volunteer
Their time, talents and treasure for those in need.


I want to thank everyone who sent in poems and effectively wrote the Rag for us this month. We’ll do it again next year.
