Seascape

savours an umbrella of stars,
and todayís illumination
downsized into hovering clouds

as shadows
lurking above a coastal village.

Sonís report card a shower of praise
and husbandís codfish
success captured bragging rights.

Now she lays in the silence, her man
snoring after a meal of loving,
Nathan in the next room
enjoying childhood dreams --

counts her blessings she
does, family a castle of promise.
