A permanent loss of happiness

entry picture

 

Upon this beach of ground sand and shells

Come! See the image of the rolling sea.

This new found land ground by the tides,

These wide expanses framed by cliffs of sky

On the windward side the mere placidity of day.

Trilobites embedded, beneath my feet

Quartz and Muscovite glitter in the granite

The wind and the waves have the time

To form sea views, sculpt'd rocks, caves.

Time grinds the face of all mankind

Time wears the skin thin and haggard

Sea views, hidden rocks, caves.

..........

Her eyes address

A story drawn from:

Dreams, Wishes, Memories,

The holy trinity of centuries.
