My mind forever wanders to that shoreline by the sea
where I laze in contemplation, warmth and summer breeze
gulls observe in flights of carefree banter in their loft
as waves would replicate their drifting
in and out again
coverlets of warmth and comfort
veils of luster glistening
o’er pebbles bathed, in smoothness aged
awash as blankets, tumble tide
veneer gentility of stone
and, alas, in charmed refine
seduction of the sea
Symmetry of random boldness purifies in tapestry
of countless shapes and shades of skin
a seeming smoothness romancing
in sensuality of days
an effervescence touches me
patina cleanse in soft veneer
a barefoot polish tingling
salts of ocean’s softened palate
drift in aimless passion for
inhaling finish, ecstasies
on stones of ages,
sands of time
