reflection in a window




Reflection in a Window

The bay is steel gray leaden today
five conifers stand ceremonial guard, 
but the mountain, on the other shore, 
has disappeared.
The horizon is near, only ten minutes way,
and beyond there is more sea. 
Slow moving lead waiting to be melted by 
by the sun and turned into spring sea where 
bathers will come swim nude and forget 
about their troubles… 
till autumn calls and dolphins stop playing 
alongside ships,
where seamen stand by its railing and dreams 
of home and yesterday´s landfall.
