The sky beyond her window sill
and trees deny the wind
She waits again this morning,
feeling forlorn and
breath to steady her gaze
as she tries to see
through thickening haze.
With sight focused upon the horizon,
she wonders if the next wave will give rise
to the vessel she is sure to recognize.
the day when
her ship comes in.
– This is an Ekphrastic poem. It was inspired by Edward Hopper’s painting ‘Cape Cod Morning’.
Beneath the blue moon
A thousand ships at sea
Head home through stormy waters
Is there one for me?

Twilight casts its shadow
Upon the open door
Colors swirl on gentle breezes
Winter comes once more
Day shutters to its end
Last light crawls upon the shore
Where ships wait to take us home
When no spark remains,
We close the darkened door
