Leavings

here
where i sweep up
the leavings
of a vacation

pieces of
paper
receipts
fond
memories
adventures
unmet
expectations
worries of
what awaits
upon our
return

bits of sand
tracked in
from jaunts
along the
beach

the wind
off the sea
carresses my
face
a farewell
kiss

the waves
still call
but i must
say goodbye
for now

allow what
i have not
done
to remain
beneath
the surface
like the
hard coral
waiting
in the
cool
dark
depths
