Treasure Island

Whitney Albright

(07-31-1988 / Alabama)

Breaking the Sun


Breaks the sun and mends it
Makes the river lose its name
Reaches bodies of the world
Robs mountains of their fame

Hums a sailor’s tune-
Gives him many a meal
Consumes mysteries-
Its depths never reveal

And no matter how long I stand
Alongside the sea
She never shifts directions-
Always comes towards me!
