Seawall

White gold days
soaked with humidity
browned by sun
staggered by loss

But a breeze blows
lifting weary head
taking the heart along
on the saltwater wind

Breakers over the seawall
washing the soul anew
as the water engulfs me
filling me with you

filling me with memory, and love.

    Living in a coastal city, these images are so easy to imagine
