"Rising to the Surface"

Memories, long forgotten, revisit me...

"Forgotten Island"

A rhythmic current
still veils
the once sensual sky
over this forgotten island
of departed myth,
home to
no dancers
and artless galleries.
Its seductive breeze
quietly lingers
behind the remnant vapor
of yesterday's storm,
revealing the secret
behind a traveled promise
that time dismissed
with submissive neglect,

Now the tireless swell
of a loyal undertow
remembers her shoreline
with somber allegiance,
and the memories of lost ships
and tropical drums
come and go
in a habitual drift
taking more of the day
than is left behind.

the broken emeralds
of lost continents
struggle to stray
onto a hindered shore
barely escaping
the tired pirates
who exploit themselves 
as well,

these shattered jewels
burn with bent sunlight
like prisms of sorrow's ghost
and knot in ocean weeds
like a confused treasure
that yesterday 
could not have sent

a dizzying tide
sprays its acid
over the misty stones,
and a haunting triumph
of earthly betrayal
forever echoes in the 
clap of a weary sail.
