I give my end-of-week post to other authors and bloggers whose work is worth noting. There are so many excellent articles out there, so many good poems and stories and artwork that I want to use my online space, once a week, to share something you might otherwise miss. To see last week’s episode, click here.

This week, I’m honored to feature a poem by Sheila Sea, who writes poems, short stories, and, occasionally, a “random journalistic endeavor.” You can find more of her writings at sheilaseapoetry.wordpress.com.


the tide

The tide is coming in
I left the door open for you
I can see you outside
You glance over your shoulder
I wink at you
You blush

I’m waiting for you now
The tide is coming in
Your shoes are by stairs
You’re treading deeper now
I can barely make you out
I wink again
I can’t tell if you blush

I’m setting the table now
My eyes are bothering me
The tide has come in
I can’t see you at all
There is a place for one

The tide..
The tide,
