His dream opened a crypt
of ancient apocryphal texts
silenced millenniums ago
carefully engraved plates
poet’s release, life of labor
recorded songs sung, themes
hummed by the muse of man
troubadour of continents
islands set in boisterous seas
beyond the “spindrift gaze”
mountain peak rendezvous
vast stretch of ripening grain
fishermen casting lines
from rocky shores, as lures
of moonbeams, coat in light
an inky surface movement
unsettling, dark deep below
the enameled sarcophagus top.
