So Long the Night
So long the night awakes
in loneliness, the columns of light
stretching down the curtain
which you eye in silence,
undulate in the drift with a calmness
in unison with every breath
that she takes.
So long the night sinks
in dreams of colours so bright,
from a distant shore flickering
into enticed no-man's land,
as she dances in the golden tides,
ever heartening in
flamboyant summer dress.
P.S.: I was dreaming of the cool, cool sea, on a sulky, lonely summer night, when the sky opened up amid peals of thunder.
