Village by the Sea
by Michael Escoubas

There is gentleness here
as the sun recedes
behind dwellings
drenched in shades
of orange and yellow.
A touch of blue unites
sky and sea and life.
Seafoam cuddles
rough and rocky surfaces
like lovers walking
hand in hand
absorbed in each other—
the caressing of the sea
is like a song
the lovers sing.
Those who live here
know the sound of love
engendered by
the sea's gentle hands.
