Ode to Pirate Sun, Sea, Wind and Rain
Pleasant intermittent rhythms
voiceless smiles that transverse space
sunlight plays in raindrop prisms
each one falls to intrigue my face.
Sweet swipes my tongue's long liquid taste
across parched lips of cooling thirst
pool in cloud's white veils misty lace
where each drop claims to bathe me first
naked to the wind singing odes to sea and earth.
Flower of the deep sea blossom;
Poseidonia and Mangrove,
blue light filters tall seagrass hums
beneath your waves throughout your coves
rhizome fills your lush treasure troves.
Aquamarina fruited leaves
dress orange red reefed coral droves
twines up coifs cliff side rising eaves;
the budding mermaid's dirge alluring as she grieves.
Slight ripples streak your polished glass
preambles rouse your dozing waves
still my sails stationary mast
upon your paused symphonic staves.
Orchestral banded wind invades
the restless beauty of your lake
each fluted note and horn pervades
the shores and landlines you will break
with tidal drums as mankind trembles in your wake.
