The Skeleton Coast - Poem by Terry Dawson

Across the Uhab river's dry bed
Lies a land unlike any other,
An arid plain beside the sea,
Of wild, mysterious beauty.
Land of majesty, wonder and awe
In pastels, seven colours of sand
That stir a man from within
To be his most; to strive ever for more

And fog rolls in on chill, chill winds
From a cold, cold treacherous sea.
There incongruous things beheld
Like ships, now skeletal wrecks,
Adrift, alone on a ocean of sand,
Miles and miles from the coast.
And driftwood, bleached on the shore
Washed in from a distant land.

And in the vastness of that wide space
Man comes to know his tiny place
And there's a stillness and a silence
To calm a turbulent soul
And arranges things from within
That a tendency to violence,
Gives way to love of peace!

But stranger by far than all things,
In that strangest of wild, wild lands,
Is the companionship that is given
By desert solitude, to all that seek -
And thus comforted souls
Sings their songs in return
To that wasteland, wild and unique.

    Nurturing your interior life is subtly portrayed in this poem, which stillness and silence seem to bind to. Desert solitude is one of the best places to be alone, thinking and pondering life and all it's trappings and decorations. Great poem, I enjoyed reading it. Thank you for sharing it.

    solitude and contemplation much needed in a busy world of today...a perfect setting for it as vividly portrayed by you........................beautiful depiction of a serenity in a wasteland as opposed to the throbbing pulse of city life that gives only fatigue and anxiety............

    someone/something took a bite out of your 'nature' cluster.

    And there's a stillness and a silence
    To calm a turbulent soul

    That a tendency to violence,
    Gives way to love of peace! ............. might i suggest replacing And arranges with And arrange or Which arranges? ? ? ? ? :)

    and further, may i suggest? (i guess i'm going to anyway) .............

    And thus comforted souls
    Sings their songs in return ................Sing their songs...

    i don't know if the scenes would have the same effect on me, but YOU have done a beautiful job writing of the landscape and its effect on you.

    my favorite lines:

    And fog rolls in on chill, chill winds
    From a cold, cold treacherous sea.

    By desert solitude, to all that seek - ..............unfortunately, if too many seek companionship there, there will cease to be solitude. i'm glad you got to feel it before a Disney World was built there, or an air base.

    i'll send to MyPoemList. thanks for sharing. bri :) (Report) Reply
