A love song for the shore

Layers of letting go are landing.

Loss lingers like your scent in a room

like smoke in my hair, ashes in the wind

like stickiness and soreness.

Aching and weeping, closing like a daisy in the night.

My anchor is trailing, bowlines tangled, bow straining.

Wild waves whisper and wink.

My heart’s heavy to sink.

A wish, awash, afloat, adrift, a dream, a scheme…

Unfold in me and enfold me in you

Live in me lover – flicker and flame.

Fuel my freedom.

Home land lies behind a door that never closes, for the door is gone

Unhinged and blown away in the storm that carried me out to sea.

Leaving just a threshold.

And here I dance.
