At times

Memories surface

Arising from a sight,

Sound or smell, and “Remember when…”

We say

Cinquain

I just took an online class to create this “Laundry Day” collage and it sure did cause me to recall many memories of the times spent hanging clothes out on a clothesline when growing up in the 50’s in Illinois.

Seashore Sunset Senses

Sunset at Depoe Bay, Oregon, photo by Vivian Marcin 2018

Breathing in so deeply

Scents of seaweed and crisp air

As gulls seranade

And ocean foam caresses

Sand covered toes

Sunset glistens like gold

Shimmering on waves

That meet rocks and waiting cheek

With a salty kiss goodnight
