A Seaborn Nocturn.........
And at once.... I am the god of night bringing
the dawn ashore and lay it softly
at your feet
Reborn and solemn wishes arrise as the sun burns
away the misty fog revealing an
As after the storms when the sea is too
cold to enjoy and the air
in soft motion
Like a new found balm applied
to your awaiting skin.......
our hands a sweetened potion
My fingers applied to your flesh
mixed with the sea.....with the sun
softening your brittle emotion
What now my love at the ends of the
motionless day .....when the
spell of dark returns
But to lower ourselves into the reflections
of a dream.....some half awakened
sleep in touch.....a slow burn
A poem for my wife , and about our first trip away together ....and to the sea from which we both came. I see footprints dissapearing into the past and I immagine them ahead too , not yet there but the shadows of them going away ahead into the future.
