    I am summoned

    long rock
    jetty
    sun boat
    sailing on
    blue dreams
    deep pink at dawn
    wind
    shifting oars to bend
    grass
    dunes
    capable of
    a walking hill
    in the dawn light
    of leisure
    wating for
    every boat's hope
    of unfurled sails
    sailing on
    obedient seas


    this is how
    the day
    lives
    viewed
    from dunes
    or jetty
    a passing
    of sky
    moments
    and clarity
    summers
    going by
    yet not forgetting
    the residue
    of winters


    costals
    appearing through
    the sea mist
    distant
    reveals
    harbors
    before the sun
    takes them away


    walking over the hills
    wandering
    tranquil
    distracted only by menus
    of what to see
    street signs
    stop lights
    shadowed with envy
    of
    the shell eloquent
    domain
    luminous prowl
    of sea going
    vessels
    sea bird's dreams
    and haunting calls
    to mates


    in this
    plum wine
    dusk
    a thousand sails


    I am summoned
    every day
    to the jetty
    the walking hills
    and dunes
    gull cries
    traveling wings
    of stormy petrels
    the always new view
    phenomenon
    of cirrus clouds
    floating like feathers
    over
    the sail boat's
    unfurled dreams

    "Don't worry about readers. Their on their own and will find meanings for your poems in their histories and yearnings. Let language go where it wants. If readers respond to your language, the poem can't help but mean." Poet Richard Hugo
