Lady of Indecision

(Poem by Wendy Howe )

The sea washes her ankles
with salt and light
while she offers morning
a field of chiffon polka dots.

Black orbits randomly
on Susan’s dress, the breeze
suddenly drawn to its wild
sense of punctuation.

Since dawn, her decisions
have fallen away to sand, nothing
settled but the beautiful
feeling of bathed skin.

Gulls fashion a ring
of metallic white against the sky
and she remembers how
a wedding band slipped
off her finger losing
itself in a field
of long grass and poppies --

the color startling
as red flowers once again
dot the landscape
like proof marks suggesting
she might edit her life
and sail home to the solitude
of shade trees and tart, apple wine.
