A Summer Remembered --- trois par huit

                                           one summer
                                    as the ocean shimmered

                              sweet regrets, after a tattered day...

                       earth wept tears, as the sun shriveled into the bay..

                        and the receding tides washed our footprints away 

                               erased in time....lost in a glimmer...

                                   teenage love, remembered...

                                               one summer...

    Just now I have seen three that I like better than my own, so that means I probably have a snowball's chance in hell of winning this contest. hahaha. thanks for commenting to your blog. When someone writes the way you do with your mastery of English, it is no problem that you do not punctuate, my dear! And I know that sometimes you do, right? Luv,Andrea
