I recently returned from a visit to Brighton, an old seaside resort on the south coast of England. Here are some poems from that time.


east pier

not
one by one
but
two by two
the lights
flicker on
to fill
the cold
dark winter
night
with fright
and lights
as dippers
dip
and
round about
the children
squirm and
lovers learn
the patient
rewards
of longing
as in
the sky
they swarm
and fly
as smoke
upon the breeze
the starlings
play for
home
I love the night
you love me bright
we love the
dim dark
heavens

once more you give me the soul of a place ... this is so beautiful and I am captured by this poem and feel I am standing amidst all these emotions your poem holds ...

thank you for a beautiful read and journey to the east pier
