Sail

cvr_12_1395074461

Breakers sing and breakers dance upon the sand-gray shore

While everlasting blue expands and shifts to nevermore

Horizon dark with distance seeks the lover in the sky

The sea’s hard-on, the masts and sails thrust for all to spy

The cresting waves toss upward still and drop downward once again

Azure-cheeked, the lover takes and gives and breathes out a sweet amen

To those who sail upon the sea, who give the sea-god face

Who take the yearning empty blue and bind the sky to space.

About suzanawylie

Suzana Wylie is the not-very-pseudo pseudonym of Susan Wylie Wilson, because let's face it, there are lots of Susan Wilsons around, and as an author, I want readers to find ME and not the bazillions of others. I've been writing all my life - since I learned to hold a pencil anyway - and can't NOT write. Other people have to breathe to live; I have to write.
