I woke from the delta breeze blowing in through the window. The marine layer had blown into our valley overnight. I made myself a cup of tea and went out into the garden to get a better view. The clouds floated over the freshly plowed field just beyond our trees. I closed my eyes while standing still under that wide open prairie sky and just breathed. I could smell the sea.

“A soft Sea washed around the House
A Sea of Summer Air
And rose and fell the magic Planks
That sailed without a care —
For Captain was the Butterfly
For Helmsman was the Bee
And an entire universe
For the delighted crew.”
― Emily Dickinson
This is my summer poem...filling our home with the calm of the sea.
