Dreaming of Cape Cod

From an ad
I see the cottage
cobblestones leading
to the front doorway
and a boardwalk
from the back door
to the ocean
wide open shore
as far as I can see
shells scattered along the sand
summer guests all gone
storm clouds brewing
along the horizon
what future waits for me
in this small house
along the coastline.

I turn to lock the shutters
board the windows and
weather the storm
knowing better days
are still ahead.
