Time Sighs


The sunset pulls colors across the sky

Like a child pulling salt-water taffy

Stretching the joy of summer days

White sands bow the aquamarine

Blue waves curl like ribbon candy

To murmur and laugh on the shore

Mixed with splashing feet at play

Kingdoms rise wrought by little hands

Sculpted by imagination

Hibiscus kisses the air sweet

And lovers say secret words

A fisherman casts his line

Bearing the bronze of his trade

Shimmered vessel plies the horizon

Like a snail on a wrinkled leaf

And time sighs, just for a moment

That you may savor life’s beauty
