Beneath this beach of sand, shells ,sea
A permanent loss of happiness, awaits me
I see this image of the rolling sea.
A new-found-land frames and hides
These wide horizons; I walk along the cliff:
Sheer drop upon the windward side,
Embedded trilobites hide beneath my feet.
Quartz and Muscovite from the granite
Weathered by winds and by waves
Sea-formed outcrops, hidden rocks, caves.
Time carves the face of all mankind
shears the skin, sculpts the lines,
sinks the eyes, wanes into an undisguised
Extinction. Dreams, Desires, Memories.
The oft-neglected holy trinity, of centuries.
