A Lone Fisherman

The ozone murmurs

In the silvery gloaming

As a fish quietly leaps

The quivering waves of

A dappled twilight moana

Its breath drawn upon

An opalescent August sky

Whispering shadows etch

Fragile moments

Bringing song of the sea

Filling piscator’s net

With briny scents;

Crepescule colors flicker

Yellowing the marine

Across windswept Neptune

The rising tide

Pulses a refrain ..

Of Shooting Sunbeams

I watch sunbeams dance on a turquoise sea
Alabaster clouds swirl round the golden sun
The sunlight warms and invigorates me
Watching tasseled shadows is so much fun.

Alabaster clouds swirl round the golden sun
Melting azure waves stretch out on the shore
Meandering warm sands, naked toes burn
On varnished sea shells, tales of ocean lore.

Melting azure waves stretch out on the shore
Lavender skies arch over beaming waves
On zephyr's back sunning themselves birds soar
In sun-lit sparkling seas fishes play.

Lavender skies arch over beaming waves
The sunlight warms and invigorates me
In sun-lit sparkling seas fishes play
I watch sunbeams dance on a turquoise sea.

Summer Dreaming

A Balassi Stanza

In the gold of sunlight,
I watch birds fly, alight
On lush trees and fragrant blooms;
A carefree, sundry spree.
Wind carouses with glee
Murmuring its bouquet tunes
Where azure skies lilt, blush
A heady summer rush:
Harvesting tangy perfumes.

Monarchs rise from slumber,
Nectarine hued cruiser,
Where ambrosial dreams throng
Meadows, glades evergreen
Dazzling eyes with their sheen;
The air flutes with birdsong
Skylarks, Chaffinchs hum, waltz
On dewed breeze somersaults,
Enchanting me, summerlong.
