Poem: The Cape

The following piece was presented at Jersey City Writers’ literary event – Formation: A Night of Poetry. Please enjoy.
The Cape

Lengthening shadows cross the cape
Distort the shadows of land and light
Like jewels caught by the world at its nape
We struggle with all of our might

An angry arm of land against the sea
Yields light and color to the dancing day
With waltzing shadows to outline mystery
Wind keeps night from going astray

In this place, two embrace, share life
With  mix of color and whirl of gowns
It is hard to tell the husband from the wife
And decide which beauty wears the crown
With small faint stars neatly placed
And dusk with borders neatly laced
