And the sea drowned in the dark

Tide in rusted chains pulled
by the shore
till every wave gasped and fell,
moon above
in the drinking dark- plunged its
hands into the
sea through the salt face- water to
quench its thirst.

One by one drops then few- dry as
echoes and
through the seabed crawled till every
bone in clay,
oh! the wanting moon, its enemy- old
as water wears
the black shawl- nothing left of the sea
but its sound.

    Lance this is what I call profound and full of unbelievable images – I found imaginations I hadn’t imagined in years – truly a great writing.

    I have always enjoyed your writings Uncle Lance and will always.
