remembering landscapes

pausing the light that frames
what edges the earth presents
carving misty daybreak with love

so that the sea whispers of you
bright colored fish celebrate
your watchers captured stare

care provides some tender ray
caress the curves with warmth
to welcome surreptitious song

fragmented sky spreads its legs
swallows you in her expanse
leaving bated breath in wake

where worn and traveled roads
sway cypress windswept and rocky
fragrant shores you once knew well

how today the memory collapses
one hundred and three seconds sown
slipping the salty air with time while

the remembering landscapes call
breaking the silence wrapped where
wonder sleepy stills the chill away
