WEBSTER'S
DICTIONARY

.

Might I capture a place in time 
When oblivion was fine 
With marshmallow mud and mindless minnows 
Oozing out of line.

Aromas rode the breezy shrine 
And deep-sea crawlers spiked the brine 
of a potpourri of seaweed slime 
In a harbor that was mine.  

I pause to grasp a breath of thee, 
Subdued to a fantasy, 
Where fog horns and the seagull’s flee, 
Enhancing the possibility. 

    Embrace me, oh, embrace me now, 
    Hold me in that place in time 
    In the harbor that was mine.  

The elusive scent does taunt me 
And sends a teasing memory, 
Come back, come back, embracing me 
Entrance me, sooth me, cooling me 
With the splendid immortality 
Of the harbor that was mine
