Meditation - Poem by Simon Collins

I sat among the sea shores stones
Reflecting on the souls in town
Miles from all their maddening
Sounds of sea and gulls around

In the corner of my eye I saw
A flash, a pearly hue
Simply treasured in a shell
I held the swirling pink and blue

Oh gem of the sacred seas
You bathe my eyes in beauty
Deep as a healers hand
But like love I set you free

Then I laid among the rocks
With magic turned myself to wood
And basked in the winter sun
As the Adrift and thoughtless should

    I tried to write a comment but I guess PH was too swamped. But this is some kind of a magic poem.
    I felt the lines sizzling through my being. Something's percolating in them, for sure. ;) (Report) Reply
