An overcast day
means soft hues of pink and blue.
The Chesapeake Bay.

Early morning drive
past chicken farms and flat fields —
rural Eastern Shore.

Sunny afternoon —
fishing boats travel along
this arm of the bay.

Walked through my ghost town–
saw a gathering of ducks,
geese, chickens, pigeons.

Blew a gale all day
yet I took a walk to feel
and smell the salt air.

The wind’s picking up —
I can hear it whistle through
an unlatched window.

Drove for seven hours
to the quietest town on
the Chesapeake Bay.
