A Lovely Breeze

"Reason, I sacrifice you to the evening breeze." ~  Aime Cesaire

motors whip by in a rhythm
drivers are hurried to become
first at the beach and recover
letting the breeze be a lover

the intonations of summer fun
ocean waves ripple as winds hum
birds squawk, flapping wings to hover
letting the breeze be a lover

jellyfish dance near the calm shore
oblivious tourists explore
hermit crabs float in, uncover
letting the breeze be a lover


  1. the repetitive line...need to get back to the beach myself...been a couple years...

  2. Evocative. :) Now I can't wait to get to the beach next month.
