PROMPT (5) Words: | ROCK | JOINT | INNER | SIGHT | SAIL |
With heart’s inner sight
I saw distant world
In your blue agate gaze
Ever enigmatic, unfathomable.
I filled in unknown details
From my own hunger
Like a paint-by-number canvas.
You were the shrouded rock I clung to
Untenable joint where real and imagined
Are hinged together, and which I’d
Never pierce, nor sever from my soul…
I had no need, no sword keen enough
To make the cut.
It mattered not that our lives
Weren’t meant to merge…
As a child I didn’t understand
And love doesn’t care about
Trivial facts: you, 32 years senior
And ensconced in cloistered fame.
Time passed with ebb, flow of tides…
One day, you sailed to Far-Forever
I sang no mourning song, grieved not
For you were finally reaching my shore.
