Remember Landscapes

A Time When…

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

so that the sea whispers of you
bright colored fishes 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 that now the memory collapses
one hundred and three seconds sew
slipping the salty air with time while

the remember landscapes call
breaking the silence wrap where
wonder sleeps the chill away
