Lexington Poetry Month Day 29

In The Lighthouse

Shifting sands on shores
twilight teased of night times fright
still harbors slumber

Kennebec flows fast
when tides rise with full moons glow
salt tinged rivers surge

Twas around this time
a year ago he was lost
some ships disappear

Others find new docks
widows walk each night waiting
for the boats return

At doubling point
she climbed the rough wooden spire
releasing her heart

Closed eyes saw no fall
tense muscles felt no water
as the body crashed

Drifting out to find
her hearts true cemetery
among ocean wrecks

A flame not light shines
lingering near old candles
inside the lighthouse
