9 december

he came to this rather tiny island

 at 6:00 in the evening

after work

she turned on the Christmas lights

just at sunset

so they would come into view

as he drove over the causeway

and into the shimmering quiet

of their evening together

poetry jam

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
