Poem by Charles Pierre: “Islet”

 
 

Captiva Island, Southwest Florida. Paul Goldfinger, Tropicana Forum. 2019.

 
 
 
 
Islet
 
By Charles Pierre.
 
 
Where currents
revise each shore
with their force,
 
 
 
this wisp of sand,
with its few weeds
and bits of debris,
 
 
 
is a brief phrase,
which the waves
have yet to erase.
 
 
 
“Islet” is from Charles Pierre’s book Coastal Moments.
