OLD TOWN

 

OLD TOWN
 Land green and velvet
tucked beneath her chin,
peninsulas shaping curving under her pearl shoulders,
loose here and pressing there 
cottages white alabaster silver grey sometimes,
clustered nesting places holding up against the sea
her heaving waves of sea veil.
 
 An evening gale displays spraying salt pebbles and wind
unforgiving rages lacerating the bedroom window,
eyelashes closed and shuttered all night.
 
Peat smoke drifts along the inlet
long strands of gray hair twisting in the wind,
the crone asleep as the storm descends
below the jagged rock, teeth snarling
at the edges of ocean, and past the thining lip of pine trees
(consecutive rows of black against white–an army plotting),
outlining that crack of sunset,
its last breath–the glory of the day–
invisibly brushing a wave aside,
so gently touching and kissing
this heaven place
good night.
 
 Buried deep in the folds of grass and hill
and emerald shawl,
young cottages cluster tightly
all over those crimson fields of slowly dying heather–
as if rooted there always!
Bog and toughened peat, rendered one or the other
depending on the rain,
depending on the shape of the day,
the months,
and years.
 
The frost designs  its own lacework collar
choking the life of every young and old growing thing,
slowly suffocating obliterating
the sweet memory of warm love
and the softness of spring and summer.
 
Finally the snap of winter moves westward,
the surging chorus of marching songs
in unison driving in from Siberia
commencing the Battle of The Atlantic Gulf Stream;
heat and sunlight losing out to
steely cold,
bitterness
and rain.
