My entry this week:
Lake Superior Memories
Cool clear water reflects azure sky
A rocky beach massages my seat
And a copper sun hangs low at dusk
Old memories coalesce within
Regarding youth’s regrets, fears, and doubts
And when life was filled with innocence
Both pain and joy urge transformation
Remembered sins make way for virtues
A sainthood born from the sinner’s womb
