A Chilly Vigil

Silent sentinels,
the snowmen patiently wait.
The nights are lonely.

Beach (Summer)

I sit on the sand
and close my eyes, listening.
the pounding surf roars.

The Autumn wind blows
making white horses gallop
all across the bay

© Ellen Ferejohn Maziekien





The gray sea splashes
fragile doilies of white lace
over my bare feet.

Loves Brings the Light

In the darkest hours,
we are gently reminded
that love brings the light.

Spring is Here

Sturdy dune grasses
bend to the will of the wind
as Spring breezes in.

Spring Picnic

Spring spreads her blanket
And we put the basket down.
It's the first picnic.

On darkened beaches
tired green turtles lay eggs.
They know it is Spring.

The sun slowly sets.
Stars, dark until now, switch on
in the Summer sky.

Our socks and shoes off,
we test the Winter water.
It bites our ankles!
