silent pleas for midnight glass

soothing for using

smiled before i chose you

silken from wet sand and coalesced mystery currents

infused depths tumbled you

ocean-caressed smooth sea glass on the shore

begging to be taken

so i did

no small pleasures to feel every part of you

firm yet softened somehow

dark elementals tempered via flames

with a craving for water

you never knew you had

denied far too long

inside unholy edicts

over unknown moons

under untold pressure

that decided

‘surrendered trust’ in gentle vast blueness

no belief

no objective

no promised land

no burden no deficit

sounded better

than a life of sharpened fragmentation

as i too released

let my heart skip rehearsals

of daisy petal love-me-love-me-nots

amidst dandelion powderpuff wishes

realized delicate fingers and tender lips

would be better served

to luxuriate in different pursuits

to sketch sunsets seducing stars

sing songings of my longings

tether trials to tempest winds

for strolls along simmer-foamed surf

with no idea why i’m smiling

‘til i catch glints of lunar beam shine

off sea glass blacker than tranquility of night

of something about to be mine

from a broken bottle that perished

a talisman soothing soon cherished

rests calm in my palm

feels sleek next to cheek

rivals gemstones since now it be burnished

its secrets I dare not say

or the stillness will cease and won’t stay

this peace has the cure

of that I am sure

waveless solace

on sacred altar shall mine lay

    What a stunning weaving of words—roll off the tongue. I too loved the ‘let my heart skip rehearsals of daisy petal love-me-love-me-nots amidst dandelion powderpuff wishes’ amongst others, and loved the lesson of the surrender of the sea glass ❤️
