December Shore #poetry #dVerse

Updated: a major oops. I forgot to mention that this was for dVerse where Mish asked us to write about ICE…ice. Many thanks, Mish! ❤

December Shore

It was late night after
ice, we walked the dogs
on shivery sand
heard rushing water
not waves, but a summer house
unprepared for winter--
shattered pipe.
The echo lonely, 
in icy stillness.
Your breath, white,
seeped upwards
ghostly, your eyes seeking
home heavens.

(c) Sascha Darlington

  1. Love the way your poem begins with vivid, specific details of a walk, transitioning to “The echo lonely, in icy stillness”, bringing deeper layers to this quadrille.
