Beach song

2015-12-09-15-24-07

 

Wind ruffles water

ripples on my skin

 

like new silk

 

undulating current

ullalah carries me

 

in ocean’s womb.

 

Sun scorches body

burns to bone

 

fingers sift sand

fragments of time

 

shattered coral

glides through.

 

Eye narrows

to catch flying

 

fish flash silver:

 

later the moonlight

casts crescent shadow

 

mad preacher screams

his song of hellfire

 

waking children

promising damnation

 

still this paradise

slip slides

 

its slice of heaven.
