Bit of Heaven

ABSORBED IN THE BEAUTY
per Marion Whaley

breathless
breathing
the breeze in silence
on the road to the bay

twisting curving limbs
forming
a tunnel

reaching high
for pieces of blue

a woman behind
the AME Church
her flowered dress
small child
on her hip
wandering
through the graves

white pick-up
filled with flowers
following

all of us meeting
on the path
by the bay
