Lovers embracing on the beach at sundown on Morro Strand State Beach by Morro Rock in Morro Bay, CA 10 Jan 2010. Photo by Michael “Mike” L. Baird, mike at mikebaird d o t com, flickr.bairdphotos.com, Canon 1D Mark III, Canon 300mm f/2.8 with Circular Polarizer, handheld, RAW.

High waves crash on the sandy beach

Pale blue skies fade to lustrous yellow, purple, and red

For your heart I so often reached,

as your face leaned over mine I read

over the lock I thought could be breached

And as you told me so many things

I could not begin to contain,

I suddenly had a feeling, a ringing

that you would never come again

One day, I woke up and my bed was empty

“Go see Vanessa”, written on my desk,

filled my heart with despair and discord plenty
