Maine's Bright Lightning The long drive up, the lap of soft waves and rocks
Being pulled into the welcoming current
The embracing sun of Maine that tangles us in warmth
The bright fire punctuating the darkness
Of the summer home empty
Speaks to me
The foxes walking across the long grassy landscapes
The stories the clouds tell and fade into the night
The ponds that fill the land the wet kayaks
The shell of crabs
Speak to me
The dense woods, the green sprouting leaves
And yellow flowers, my family’s love,
The Maine summer’s dinners that make mouth sing
The porches, the view
The thousand stars spread over the night
Like butter spreading over warm toast
Speak to me
And my heart soars
