MOBILE BAY…a poem

Kevin Parish

I
watched the sun’s last rays

Cast
across Mobile Bay

And
felt the warmth of the summertime wind

Blessed
did I feel

In
this place, so surreal

And
for a time, I could breathe once again

The
weight of the world

Lifted
and unfurled

As
my mind glides on the pelican’s wings

Waves
gently caress

Where
these bare feet rest

And
inside, with the seagulls, I sing

Mobile Bay, Alabama, Shoreline, Shore

Little
did I know

That
long, long ago

As
a young boy my roots were set

Yet
my life moved on

Away
and beyond

But
my home – I will never forget
