Sea Shades

Just as my eyes begin to adjust to the salty darkness,
they distinguish your shadowy figure,
struggling to discriminate your form from the obscure.
They battle to hold on to your silhouette,
to define it against the sea’s shades of night.

Having been blurred for so long,
I find your face has begun to clear.
A heavy fog lifts gradually.

You emerge.
Precariously stepping,
slipping on sand.

Fumbling in fear,
I reach out my hand,
you will take it.

  1. Your liking my poem “Moonlight and Geese” has made me feel wonderful! I’ve just returned from reading more than a few of your poems, and am sooo happy to find poetry that rings true without maudlin sentimentality! You have such a distinctive poetic voice; please, MORE! 🙂
