2020-08-24 – Driftwood on a Beach

below love’s torch drip the gauzy
dreams you wove while
helpless in strange

as forever’s child exploring
the feather brushed
against her,

it was touch from that
cute kid who lived
a ghost town

out at sea, writhing
outlines of our foreign
bodies rest spilled
milk on sand,

and in a blink, beauty’s
washed from our

and whispered memories
wave you back
to sea,


just driftwood
on a beach

Wistful Beachcomber
