Bridging The Ocean Sky


Savouring the wind whispers
from afar
that sang her name,
she read again,
with twinkling eyes,
his name in the beach sand
and watched as the waves,
in turn, drank his name.
She laughed happily
at the thought that
his name could never
be erased from her mind
where she surrounded it in
sparkling glass
so that she could view it
from all sides
and listen to the tinkling
as her mind fingers
twanged the glass
just to hear the music
that evoked his presence.
.
She looked up and smiled
and, opening her sensuous lips,
she softly whispered his name
back to him
through the winds
where he stood
over the ocean
amongst the bean rows
like a latter day saint
working the fields
and reading her whispers
in the wind
with his heart
and his mind
and his soul.

Their hearts,
so far from each other,
knew
and they blended
and sang
and danced
as one
and climbed
up to the sky
and the sky
sighed as it wrote
their bliss
into yesterday’s golden pages.
