Summer-stirred

Click on images to enlarge...

 Earth is an echo of far-off seas...


The boardwalk is empty
Save for the snow
Muffling the murmur
Of summers-ago
 
Earth is an echo
Of far-off seas
Like glints of turquoise
Caught on a breeze

There is a hunger
The north wind keens
Taunting a hollow
Of what-have-beens

What-have-been mornings
Turn summer to fall
Ere brooding sky lowers
Its snow-flower shawl

The pen holds pictures
Pressed into word
As hearts held by winter
Are summer-stirred
