Treasure Island

Shaun William Hayes

(May 30th / The edge of the New Forest, UK)

I Count the Dust


I count the dust of passing time
The golden massive grains of sand

A misty breath forms into stars
A billion fractions of a moment

By sun and star we travel so far
Beyond the golden compass of time

Naught but the memory marks the way
But that, in essence, is what we remain

Memories, older than heavens domain

And pays us but with earth and dust;
