Chesapeake Bay Lighthouse B&B

Written from the upstairs window of the hexagonal lighthouse on the bay in Annapolis, Maryland.


From my bed by the window
in the lighthouse guest room
I could hear them –
waves maternally caressing
the shore of Chesapeake Bay.
Calming, rhythmically pulsing
like a heartbeat remembered –
womb sounds.

And I sleep like a baby.
