On The Shores Of The Lake - Poem by Shiloh Thompson

I sit quietly upon the sand
Breathing
The air whooshing in and
Out
Rhythmic like the waves
Upon the shore so
Close
Yet so far away from my
Place in the dunes.

I hear the wind whistle
Dancing
Singing among the dunes
The grass whirling in the
Gentle
Breeze from the vast lake
Kissing
The whisper thin blades
Of green and yellow.

This poetry of life and of
Love
Only broken by the crying
Of the floating gulls
Conquering
The prevailing winds from
The endless stretch of water
Everything
Intent in the life-rhythm
On the shores of Lake Michigan
