Sweet Summer Memories

100_0890

In those waves where light seems to glitter,

ride memories

of a boy on a raft,

of body surfing, and wipe outs

and dreaming

of being old enough

to drive,

a Chevy of course

old enough to take Marianne

on a date……

would she want to dance?

Suddenly a seagull woke the old man….

squawking again

for a piece of bread.

He reached into the bag

and threw some crumbs in the air…..

longing for more

of his sweet summer memories.

When Warm Breezes Floated Gently

100_5391

Holding each other at the lake, I can feel you breathing My Love,

as the ripples on the water take us back in time,

when warm breezes floated gently

and we were surrounded

by a world of leaves.

Hang on My Love

winter is

almost

over.

Seagulls Descending for a Piece of Bread

100_0668

In our coldest moments our minds can drift back to the ocean

warmer days, the sun reflecting the light to our faces

and seagulls descending for a piece of bread

the noise of children playing, splashing,

while lovers hold hands walking

along the beach.

       

They say the ocean is beautiful with snowflakes

falling, but we never think of that

on the warmer days.
