(Poem) konigsberg summer by Christina Quinn

“Rain” by Christina Quinn

the baltic glistens with gold
tears spilled
from the eye of a goddess
calcified in beauteous resin 
lovers who stroll the sand
search for amber teardrops
a pledge to those they love

war came
& when it was time she
walked the thousand miles to freedom
took her boy
a sheaf of love letters bound in blue
& a strand of amber tears
the memory of
konigsberg summers
caught fast in yellow sun
