sea birds settle in…

morning sun raises
mist from stillness – mother sea
young men cast their nets

sea birds settle in
the stillness of a long night
old men stow their nets

    • Well… it’s a metaphor, but yeah, I kinda am. Nice catch.

      Wait! Connie – I just saw that this is you! I did not recognize the “Write…” gravatar. I thought, Who is this who knows I am no longer by the ocean. Just followed it back and found you! So good to see you here.

  1. This evokes a soothing image and makes me feel tranquil. I don’t understand the metaphor but the poem is elegant and spare. I’ve been needing some time to relax and reading your poetry helps. Thank you teacher. With love.
