Treasure Island

Meditations in Blue


A kaleidoscope of shell grit coral sands

Grinds through my grasp as it leaks through my hands

Falls in an arc swerves on wintery breeze

From my grasp as I clutch spills from hand twixt my knees

Each crystal grain golden twinkles in flight

Reflects moonlit sea on this crystal clear night

As it falls onto beach forms a neat little mound

Forever temporary as the sea sings her sound

Inhale crisp black air as I look out to sea

Breathe in synch with her flow as she exhales with me

I lay back look up at black star punctured sky

We’re as one breathing in I surrender she sighs

Meditate on the pulse of her slow ebb and flow

Wire brush against snare gentle wash too and fro

Soon I melt between grains of coral washed sands

No longer I weigh as a creature of lands

Leak toward sea earthly bindings unravel

At tides mercy on will of current I travel

Beneath the satin moonlit surface

We are as one with one sole purpose

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
