Escapes

Escapes

Gripped.
The entrancing dances of words
transcend the clamoured melting of waves
and buoyant holiday voices
of sandcastling children.
These words have their own soundtrack
stirring memory and imagination
in a cauldron of escape.

Released.
Seizing the opportunity
a smaller imagination
invents another adventure;
the enticement of the sea
drawing in its prey.

The breath of Summer,
a snap-shot shadow,
from January’s vantage,
melts remembrance.
