“Sea” Breeze


A semblance of the sea
rushing and ebbing
was found in wind today.
The tinkling of the dancing chimes
set my mind at play.

It caused a longing
for the gulls
and salt-air pungency.
Of taffy pulling
beyond the glass
and a walk beside the sea.

Oh, come along
as moon wanes
and sun rises above the surf;
we’ll skitter with sandpipers
along the sandy turf.

©July 7, 2004

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.

It caused a longing
for the gulls
and salt-air pungency.
Of taffy pulling
beyond the glass
and a walk beside the sea.

I believe that longing ever present in every second of my life...

Enjoyed this with every fiber of my being...especially languid, descriptive and soft.  A rich mellow chello to the soul.
