Sabbatical Dreams -IT

Twilight waved me sadly sighing, adieu, Furling her rosy hue; cautioning me. Earie boardwalk creaks near the white sand beach, But alone I dream here with piercing pains. The label I hide on the wine bottle, A label of a shirt she bought for me, Which I fondly kept as a souvenir Of my final visit home...years ago. They told me of the psycho cat’s demise, And of horror stories that haunts a beach, Yet I've got no place better now to dream: Sabbatical dreams after quarantine. *A 1st Place* win in the following contest (judged on Nov. 11, 2020) Oct. 24, 2020 Collaborate With Me Poetry Contest Contest Sponsor: Kim Rodrigues
