Basking in the Sun


As the two of them searched the horizon for whales

leaning over the rail, he looked at her profile.

She was always so regal and yet



He took some pictures of her,

when she thought again

of his shredded heart.


Yet he was a knight

teaching her strength

in spite of the bleeding.


They turned again to the sea


the joy to continue,

and saw the horizon did indeed,

go on forever.


She pointed her face upward

and basked

in the New England sun,

as they found

each other’s hands,

in the light.

Peace and blessings to everyone.
