The moon wound, smell the sea, nostalgic memories, my first poem.
Mellow after light, the wrinkled blue purple bay, my inner prophet,
spreading into lines of poetry, writes through me, a poetry of my soul.
Winds of heaven blow across the heavens, waves clasp, I lay here, just
dreaming of being.
Sea, browning grey, white laced, under limitless sky, as time plays, life
Face of the clouds, faces of the past, who I really am, you give, may together
we break through iron gate of life.
Seasons I have seen, hold fresh, blue, yet green, the beauty of you, so close,
so near, makes me think, as seasons do not fade.
