Love Aching for Life

The glint of setting sunlight
On the Connecticut River
Highlights the deep, yet softening, crease
Of time on this landscape.

The platinum light
Beguiles my attention
As I slip
Through the clouds

To paradise
And the sea,
The same light
Melding with the ever effacing shore:

All fire and heart,
So unlike
The cool and distant colors of home.

 Water, life, consciousness,
Every hope and dream:
Love aching for life:
To be.


  1. I find this poem perfect! Spare yet freighted with meaning and life experience. What a pleasure it is to have you in my life, Sandy
