summer simmers to a close
as cooler morning air slips
under the sunset dreaming
of the hush of ocean surf
and cry of a sailing gull
thoughts drawn by the tide to the
ocean’s warm blood drawn out to
the blurry red horizon
out to the world beyond time
seeing life as the salty
infinity that carries
us merrily along we
drown in deep voices of blue
