Man With The Coiled Beard

He sits on a chair as old as time itself –

a throne?

could be.

Surveying the world through liquorice eyes

blinking away the visions of being caught between this world

and the next.

Blinking away a tear

as the tragedy in all its grimness emerges

a tarnished, disturbed earth

Could be so perfect…

Another day dawns dazzling and bright.

Nightfall descends and plummets further and further

into the dimness

he feels the pull of the sea behind him, calling him,

from whence he came.

But still he sits, motionless

until with a final view, he rises slowly

and heads back to the sea

where he submerges and is consumed by the deep deep watery expanse

until nothing exists, but a stillness…


Thanks for stopping by

Until next time, Sharon
