 Mary Lois Alford

Love carries the heart to places it should not go

Deep within the recesses of the waves

Perspicacious judgment leaves the moment

Longing for the want as the water moves to and fro

 

Who is this woman

who captivates the heart?

 

Salient dreams nourish the gentle graciousness…

 

As the coy smile appears on her lips…

 

Demeanor revealing  the finer art!

The plaintive cry of the Salish Sea…

Woman so strong…mesmerizing…calling

Yet deftly refraining…beckoning me onward…

Quietly drifting over the stream to me
