Distant Isle (poem)

Updated on August 30, 2013

I sit alone upon my distant isle

As sunset cast its glow across the sea

This paradise I fashioned happily

That I might find escape from passing while

-

There always with my lover I will be

As vast horizons blazed within a smile

And beauty there was scented by a style

A dreamer reached across a fantasy

-

But fate forever challenged by my dreams

Set loss on heaven storm of bitter rain

Which left me all alone amid the sand

-

Yet taken by the sunset’s flowing streams

I close my eyes to world of stress and strain

As on my face I feel a gentle hand

      From dreaming about beauty, you are reawakened by the beauty in your reality...

      You create worlds with your words.

      You evoke emotions with the stroke of your hand.

      You make us laugh in one style and then bring us to tears in another.

      Your style is yours, alone.

      No doubt, one day, your works will be studies by those wiser than me.

      Tell me now, are you a wizard? A wise man? A poet from centuries past

      who has come to live among us, today?
