A bientôt, mes amis

En vacances

There is a beach –
Long, quiet, silver in the sun –
Where, for a while,
I can be
Complete.
Until
At summer’s end
I leave
To spend three seasons
Living here
Half-heartedly;
Knowing exactly
Where I left
The rest.

 

Holidays are upon us, so gonecycling will be  – well, gone cycling – very shortly. Thank you all so much for your comments, support and encouragement. Looking forward to catching up with you soon.

  1. This is a lovely quiet piece. I’m very fond of the seaside so I enjoyed this poem a lot.
    All the best to you for a very lovely holiday. I has been nice getting to know your poetry. 🙂

    • Can’t thank you enough for your generous comments and steadfast support this year, David; it’s been a delight getting to know you, and reading your work. I’m sure the ol’ Brittany magic will work once again!
