In this June

If in the whisper of sea,
the rolling rush and breathy brush of storm-tossed waves,
kissing the shore,
you dream of moon-song,
then wake to hear the symphony of light lingering–
take my hand, in the peach-petaled sun-glow,
to walk through shadows,
there beneath the craggy cliffs
still heart-haunted, the universe restsβ€”yet–
listen. Do you hear summer sing?
Through open windows, ghosts soar
embracing hereafter, as flowers bloom again,
as love blooms again, as the sky blooms pink and redβ€”again
and again, and again.

Yesterday was our wedding anniversary. It’s been a long, difficult year, and Covid with new variants is still here, but with vaccinations, the world–at least my part of the world–is opening up again. The Oracle always knows. We had a beautiful day yesterday, though we didn’t go to the beach this year. (There will be photos on Monday.)

  1. I’ve just posted my Oracle poem. I wasn’t getting it and didn’t use many of the words. I thought I was writing something completely unrelated. Then I read yours…

    Happy anniversary! I hope you had wonderful day! Sorry, I didn’t know yesterday. It’s ours next Sunday. Just the time zone difference πŸ™‚

  2. Happy Anniversary, Merril (& hubby)!!!! πŸŽ‰πŸ·πŸ·
    Yes, the Oracle did well!
    Its rosy words of ongoing love are definitely an anniversary gift!
