21 June 2013


slender spray 
drifting 
on a dark plane --

why does one 
waver so, 
on this summer day? 

*   *   *

release has come finally -- a week's retreat to the Cape, to soak in the sun, walk in the sand, read late into the night with fireflies tapping one's shoulders and knees . . . 

to re-charge the creative batteries, like an old junk car, slightly tipped toward the earth, rumbling along, running on fumes . . . 

much to think about, nothing to think about . . . much to discard as so much unnecessary luggage . . . to lighten the load and find fresh glee in each day . . .

Happy Summer to all my blogging friends!

Enjoy that week at the beach! You've certainly earned it. Put your toes in the sand and let the creative energy return. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
