Abraham Terian: South of Monterey

Click hear for the audio clip South of Monterey read by Lola Koundakjian.

With so many things common on my mind –
interlaced layers of memory and feeling –
I’m waiting like a catcher with a mitt
for the sinking sun.

In my mind I’m adding to the poetry of my time,
talking to myself with familiar, elegiac feeling;
my footprints in the sand a readable text
on longing and loss.

The sun is just about to kiss the yearning ocean,
to adjourn once more with a lingering embrace.
I’m watching jealously as seagulls cheer
the eternal lovers.
