The sea got hold of me

as a fainting wind made a wiry music,

dissolving me in fluid beauty, isolating me

in a universe of wonder and warm memories

where humming birds raced down my avenues of hope.

The sea unlocked my fountains of peace, melting my life

with sanctifying sweetness. I abandoned myself

to the honeysuckles and my poems lured

me to the moon where my secret

waters overflowed waiting for

the sun to rise on me again.
