22 Oct


The gulls fly low,

the weather is cool;

the bays are frothy

and the skies are blue.

High upon the cliffs

Lavender blooms, framed

by dark greenery; I know

that soon summer will be


In town, the people walk

through cobblestone streets,

going here and there; jutting

into the sky is a lone church


Shadows emerge from the

eastern sky spreading across

a calm sea; soon it will bring

the night and set the day


The lighthouse begins to glow

it is seen from afar; then in the

sky appears one lone star; town

people walk here and there,

when safe in their home they will

wait once again for another

    You included a natural ebb and flow of words, Elizabeth. I enjoyed this, especially the unique idea of night setting day free. 🙂
