Cable Beach

A mirrored-glass in the stillness of sleep

Shadows stir in the whispering deep

A gentle breeze

Breathes in my ear

Soothing my mind

Waking the fear

Grains of sand flicker in space

Invisible rock pointed and round

They fly against my waking face

Silenced by gravity and bound to the ground

Blades of stone and ancient glass

Amber, jade, russet and fawn

Journey towards the final horizon

clear as my memories of the earliest dawn

Dry leaves circling sand

They exfoliate the land

Turning fresh green to skeleton leaves

Where the land and sea collide forever

And breathe into eternity
