Fire Island Diary (III)

Saltaire September

The greens still remain but
Side by greys orange burnt
Siena and myriad shades of
Brown. The autumn comes,
The sap slows a dryness creeps
Deep and leaves curl, inward

Facing toward winter distant ahead.
Summer shouts echoes fade over
Cooling waters, empty sands and
Bicycle stands kicked in place. Another
Summer memory matures and falls
Into the hued tale of living.




A native of the North Shore of Boston, I currently live on Long Island, New York. I worked at Boston College as the Acting Director of The Church in the 21st Century Center until August, 2010 and served until November 2016 as Canon for Formation, and Dean of the George Mercer Jr. School of Theology of the Diocese of Long Island. I am now Rector at the Church of Saint Anselm of Canterbury in Shoreham, New York.
