|We came to that path along the sea
When the sun sighed its lilac breath in firmament
And loosed the day skies above duned grasses
That swept your shoulders
And I remember the lace of your dress
Crowned in sand among the rushes
Revolting winds of wounded last breaths
Whispering through the misshapes of your gown then to die
Solemn we lived
Solemn we waited
In pilgrimage drudged over the blue dim
From whence at birth we were sent to drown in its innocence
But in time you unburied moons with your hands
And let them onto skies heavy with maudlin love
Reflecting the known and unknown of shadowed seas
from which we came and long sailed to shore.
And I remember as you approached the water
Time’s forgotten swells bowed at your feet
Gasping from distances traveled, like broken mariners moaning home
Among mysterious miles of dark water
Just to watch your winged feet shutter in white breaks
Wended, and washed towards the shores of others
Those where your moon has not yet shone, those never to see
