sea creatures

Do you recall the night

by the shore,

The chilly breeze biting at

our legs?

Shivering you took off your shirt

and wrapped it across my

bare shoulders.

 

I have  had other moonlit nights

but none like this.

Your shirt still smells of the sea

your cheek as  rough as

shells embedded in the sand.

I kept your shirt,

pretending to forget.

 

The garden is in bloom now

in lush  shades of red

that push  against green leaves,

fire-wheels of lilies.

A contrary sower, it is my gift.

I would prefer salt wind

and a chilly moonlit shore.

 

My nights are filled with dreams

of entwined sea creatures

unwilling to disentangle now

they have found one another.

  1. So beautiful… you have created a whole marine poetic imaginary, dear Holly… the second stanza really stands out…
    Love the metamorphic twist in the last stanza as well… Great poem… Love and best wishes, my friend. Aquileana 😀
