Reverie And Remembrance - Poem by Charl JF Cilliers

The water droplets spray
their confusions of syllables

childhood memory returns
with the salty taste
of early vowels and consonants.

The cormorant is silent at sea:
on the rocks spreads its wings

in sunlight

I drop my arms, having blessed the day,
marvelling that childhood
has so little and so much to say.
