Route 7 Review - Page 70

Beach BY Joan McNerney My mind is an ocean where swimmers, surfers, sun worshippers cavort. Long salty hair held between their teeth. Flourishing wild flowered gowns …streams of silk waves of taffeta splashy lace. They sail through my watery face combing my eyes whispering in my ears. Alone, under a pointillist sky. Gulls flying around me. Black waters touched by moon of vague prophecy. Joan McNerney’s poetry has been included in numerous literary magazines such as Seven Circle Press, Dinner with the Muse, Camel Saloon, Blueline, Poppy Road Review, Spectrum, three Bright Hills Press Anthologies and several Kind of A Hurricane Publications. She has been nominated three times for Best of the Net..
