Best Poem of M.J. Lemon

Alone At The Beach
Alone at the beach
with hundreds surrounding me
Calm asserts itself
Cruise ships crawl seawards
Starfish grapple tiny fry
Gulls circle above
Sun rays caress kelp
Incoming waves unsettle
The tide comes closer
The old crab trap sinks
New sailboats disturb bitterns
Time to face traffic . . .

Joy
As certain as sunrise
or flooding after rains
Or arrests after rallies
or waking after sleep
that may be deep
though not replete
with eternity

Like a harvest of ice
a plethora in a trice
Like boulders of vapour
all written on paper
might fade faster than
we can perceive
Read the full of Joy
