"An Atlantic Breeze"

An Atlantic Breeze

She palms my cheek,
lifts hair from nape, kisses it
as I contemplate gentleness

for it isn't always her nature.

She's wooing me this summer eve
and I'm hard pressed to remember
a tempest she can be..

For now toes sink into cool sand,
waves gently ripple ashore
as seagulls soar

undaunted in her July sky.

Memories flood back for me, in your poem.

There is such a strong physical aspect of this... the toes in the sand especially.

The Atlantic has always been my favorite coast, you have described the feeling beautifully, Margaret.
