Two dark fluffy eyes
enormous in size
made of clouds in the sky
stare back at me
Straight above me
an ocean so lovely
dense and fluffy

As the mariner sinks softly beneath the white tipped foam
He dreams of shadowed woodlands
In his County Antrim home
Where gulls rise in the sunlight echoing and free
And bluebell glens descend in silver ribbons to the sea
And he smiles a gentle smile that lights up the space around
And recalls the love that once was lost but now is surely found
For the one who stayed beside ...

You kiss the tops of my closed hands, the mottled scarf round, a hand-fasting
Where little triple diamonds sit, it stands like a marriage
Our walk round the sea brimmed with its longings and its blue remedy
I am peering into our brief lives like Ægir’s wife and her sea fury

A story about
an old poet

yet I still feel so lonely.
I have given my heart to you
and now it’s sinking slowly in the seas.
I will wait for eternity
may the seas direct you back to me.
