23 Friday


they thought that these days would last forever.  all of them wished that this summer would stay.
it was a magical  and it seemed as if even though time was not able to stand still it could  at least pause.

We  even imagined that perhaps we could linger in the current of time like the seagulls that flew up from the beach and stood still in the sky for a short time.

In times to come we would have only the hazy memory of looking down upon ourselves playing on the beach or riding bikes of an afternoon. 

the children felt the pull

as if they loitered near the edge of something

We who knew it was there all along lived for a short time enchanted

and then we walked together out of the last of the extraordinary summer


  1. You are a poet and a photographer. I am awed by your many talents!

  2. Lovely. The imagery evoked by the words "linger in the current of time" is wonderful.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
