In the water that sinks of the sea

i sit in the palm of the sea
by tidal pools shallow and lonely,
my hands dark tan and somber
my model sailboat with whitened sail—
our youth idol,
as idol as the dune enclosures so high
i cannot see rustling tree tops
where i climbed,
nor swings old and rusted. …
thoughts all silenced by the roar of the sea;
i the lad with the sailor’s dreams
long time wish the melancholy wash
of waves and brine. …
alas i wait, for the air is motionless
and the land is dry
in the water that sinks of the sea.

  1. Lance the images in this are enticing and draws the reader in immediately; life and situations change throughout life, leaving a person with vivid memories of growing older and even aware of how also the world changes – this causes one to stop and think about life in general. Enticing and stimulating!
