Pallor of autumn moonlight,
cast across one lonely sea,
unearthly vessel thrice passing,
salvation ebbing quietly to me.
Laboring tides collide about,
launched, upward and swift,
set this passionate bounty before me,
then elusively cast it adrift.
I breath the sting
salt vapor and spray,
quelled calm - the ocean,
my gaping heart cresting
on careworn tides
foamy springs from Triton’s potion.
beaded waves distress,
succumb my soul to sweet kisses wild,
weighted breezes lustily billowing
At once, I awaken as before,
escaping nature’s cold dampening grasp,
forever altered to the better, to sea,
this lover, always knowing you.
