Pier Into The Past

Pier Into The Past


We walked to

The end

Of the pier


And watched

The distant

Ships, silently


Drift toward

The horizon

Accompanied by


The seagulls

And the clouds

And the waves


Until the ships

Had long passed

From view


And the cold

Of evening

Arrived unbidden


Now the seagulls

Disappeared into

Horizon skies


The clouds had

Amassed into a

Bank of solid grey


And the waves

Passed below with

Ineffable relentless power


I turned and

Walked back

Along the pier


Accompanied by

The footsteps of

Summer memories


When the seagulls

Greeted us as

Old friends


And the clouds

Parted to high white

In cobalt skies


And the waves

Stilled to a

Flat calm


But now cold winds

Encouraged weather tears

As I left the pier behind


And it was then I

Recalled we were

Not alone


Only I was
