Reflections on Art and Life

Adrift

Through the cracks in the windows
The sea whistles its ancient song
Waves crash against the walls
In endless ostinatos
The foam
Seeps in under the door
Sizzling mysteriously

Rock me to sleep
Tell me stories of sunken cathedrals
With stained glass windows
A mirage of aqua and sapphire

Deep beneath
In currents of seaweeds
Medusas comb their hair
With coral reef forks
And braid it with garlands of seashells

Thousands of tears mingle
In the ocean of forgetfulness
All cares drown
In slow motion
Slower still
Be still
Let me float
Adrift
