Harbor Blues


Dimpled river's stunning expanse
Shimmers far beneath pigeons' hurried paces
As another hour vanishes for believers in romance,
The ravages of loneliness filling in timelines on their faces.

Like brittle, discolored leaves descending
From plane trees rattled by a capricious wind,
Signaling summer's reverie is ending,
Jilted survivors nurse wounded hearts on the mend.

Offering solace is this urban sea,
Beckoning the lovelorn to cast out despair.
Sunburned anglers in camaraderie
Toss back misery -- bad catches to spare.
