"Unpretentious"


Unpretentious

I long for a window open
to grey mornings and bird-song

where heat
trickles in upon ocean's breeze

and afternoon storms
circle, swirl,

wash songs of ancient wayfarers
to sandy shores

where life's complexity and beauty
I hold in my hand

unpolished.

Your poetic skill in fastening on the small, yet essential facets of life, is so evident in this poem, Margaret. It shines.

Sooo pretty, Margaret. I was there for every bit of that. (Actually I have been in person a few times. But no place where the large shells are so plentiful.)
