colors of sea

Posted to Poetry




the sea shimmered softly ,smooth even.
the sky over the sea stood still ,
seemed to see its colourful soul
reflected on the floods,
fluctuating flux after flux .

a burst of water , a burst of sun
exploding rainbows ,
colours as no sky has seen,
sudden and subsiding suddenly.

undoing gravity into silk-slow graffiti.
taking the colour deep down ,
to make the sea seem blue.

the dolphin weaves the water
into the wayward sky,
invents the colours of eternity
