"Here At The Shore" by mountainwriter49
Here At The Shore
An Octogram
Potlatch: 28 May 2016


My life slows down and things align
here at the shore.
The stress that I abhor resigns
at least for this all too short week.
I’ll find the solace that I seek
while kissing you as ocean roars
here at the shore.
We snuggle close, our arms entwined,
while at the shore,
atop the dunes and sipping wine
‘neath stars galore
as crescent moon begins to rise.
Oh how you tease and tantalize!
I wish we could stay evermore
here at the shore…
