Treasure Island

Theodora (Theo) Onken

(Washington State)

((( Fathomless)))


Beaches covered with sands of time--
Coast lines edges in scalloped design-
Lighthouse beams shine at whats left behind...
While the seas ebb and flow leave nothing to find;

Just ragged soaked memory echos--
In the shells i put to my ears...
Just oysters minus the pearls of wisdom...
My body 'tis drenched from crying my tears;

With no comforting harbor even in view...
With no loving lagoon harboring youl...
With no alibaster sands-all brand new--
Even with our love once deep as the blue;

Yes, the beaches are covered in sands of time--
Much like an hour-glasss but with a chime--
Ringing the bells for the season of the reason to rhyme...
For loosing you 'tis a fathomless crime;

On to distant and greener shores you are?
And i will never understand the reason- or the why...
Sitting here in the sandy granules of an empty beach--
Remembering you-i again begin to cry;

    A poem of great sadness and despair on a lonely beach with
    the sand. Thinking about a love that was lost and shedding
    tears. Into each life a little rain must fall. I have two poems
    titled Tear Drops and A Lovers Stroll, Please take a peek.
    Nice write. (Report) Reply

Far south the lift,
