On Beaches, Narragansett, Rhode Island - Poem by Louise Marie DelSanto
Here on Narragansett Beach
figures on wet sand in the afternoon
cool, foamy surf touching bare flesh
Like the touch of a strong lover,
I welcomed it all at once,
savoring the love songs for later
Hovering sea-birds, larger than life
consistent in flying beyond the horizon
What pleasure in such a flight?
The sun was so deliberate
so quick to brown my milky skin,
Such a gift this place in daylight.
Everything else is insignificant, I thought
And my body trembled thinking of you,
my bare feet pressing into warm sand.
