A Poem by Anna Marie

Lavender twilight slinks shadows 'cross the courtyard,
granting permission for the moon to rise over England.
The night is gentle, a quietude not found in sun-storms;
raging oceans catching rays that remember a kind wind.

The ghostly shanties of a jackdaw echo in the great halls,
ravaging the cradle of sanity I cannot hope to pretend.
Children are foolish, teary daydreamers, as is their right;
fearful of lectures and some god that one could offend.

Under starless skies I have grown old- withered and weary,
channeling the vast unsteady waves of pale foam that sway.
'I am a warrior,' I whisper to the rainswept, angry sea;
A hallucination so childish the wrinkles almost fade away.

The labyrinthine hex that guards the wilted forget-me-nots,
quivers in a state of cold unrest, plagued by a distant day.
Lightning clips by the cruel unruly coastlines of England;
calling to a child who cannot swim but sails ahead anyway.

A rushing wave knows no destination, until iced and solid to acknowledge such travels, circled again and again, beyond the flat line

You have a unique way of writing I enjoy. Perhaps its the diction, yet I'm puzzled as to why more people don't review your work when it stands out so much.

Anywho, excellent writing.

You do, and you're welcome Anna. :)
Primordial images simultaneously assault the senses. At times, the tissue-thin veil between reader and writer, real and surreal, completely vanishes. Excellent poetically penned my friend :-)
