Sky closed gray blue
as a turbulent sea above me
wind keeps the rain out
acquiescence of refusal
also messages are absent
negative number side of things
heart felt breaks day, as waves
on the shore of my body toss
figures of dreams, movement
of light against sand, burdens
of a rising tide, loneliness sings
midst elements, source of
a woman’s love content
longing to close the night
open the sea in me.
