Driftwood

Driftwood

 

seductive tropical waters

glorious and turbulent seas

tides in, tides out

my body flows

a siren sings

my heart aches for thee

 

secrets, dreams, and

shattered, battered souls

like broken coral

and shifting sands

empty shells and

d r i f t w o o d

 

ancient messages

bound in aubergine seaweed

brittle, root attached

not quite ready

to give up

 

dreams once written

rusted trawlers buried stories in the sea

sailors tied up in tales

his heart to be caught

without release

 

a siren sings

I hear her echo

she calls her lover out to sea

 

are you here, my love

can you hear my plea

you know I will be gentle

bring your heart

home

to me
