a symphony orchestra
on mute

    on beach

    Silence,
    that narrates under the sand
    the tides of heartache.

    liquid, thundering
    wave song- mine forever
    in the curl of whelk

    I wrote this years ago as a class demo when I was teaching high school English.

    slaughter and tears
    chests in black water
    the hurricane dies

    `
    faded purple blossom
    now, trailing to the ground
    a single tear

    Blossom's tears,
    dew.
    Food of a new beginning,

    these same jellies
    mimicking blinking stars--
    drooping eyelids
