Guest Poet Mary Lockwood


Weightless in the cool undulating blue,
My nose sun-painted with freckles,
I draw near and wrap myself around you.

I feel your heat, do you feel my shiver?
The water warms between us and
We kiss like an ocean to a river.

If there were gulls flying, we had no clue,
Nor did we see the sailboats pass
Weightless in the cool undulating blue.

June, 2001

Mary Lockwood's Questions:

1) I am concerned that this might feel stunted. Do you feel it would benefit from more stanzas?

2) The second stanza seems to stumble and I am open to suggestion on how to adjust the wording, but keep the main idea.

3) Any title suggestions?
