'salty tears' rengay

Ron Moss, Gene H. Murtha, an'ya

(published WHC Short Verses)

 

beach whales

their last breaths

on the outgoing tide      (Ron)

 

beneath silent clouds

gulls keening

a ghostly lament      (Gene)

 

over the troller's sonar

voices of dolphins     (an'ya)

 

ominous sky

the long sailor thinks of home      (Ron)

 

on the sand

even a cracked conch

still bellows      (Gene)

 

southern cross

salty tears blowing in the wind      (an'ya)
