Zachary Taylor State Park, Key West: Ilse of Man (Reflections of an Aging Poet)

The tide is low,
sea bed is rocky;
feeling youthful,
and somewhat cocky.

The rock slab isle
beckons to this soul.
I swim out slow
to lessen the toll.

Catching my breath,
I bask in the sun;
surrounded now
by boys having fun.

Thoughts drift back to
Baiting Hollow Beach:
days of my youth,
now so far from reach.

Bleached blond hair,
body chiseled and tan,
becoming a man;

Sketching seascapes,
or writing a poem;
just enjoying life
before leaving home.

No going back.
God, those were the days:
innocence lost
in a purple haze.

So  boys,

Enjoy your fun!
If you only knew,
what manhood brings;
what aging will do.
