Yellow Sun

Yellow Sun

A Poem by Casey Truax

The yellow woman in the yellow dress
Danced on the yellow shore;
She swayed the water with her hand
As ebbing tides of sunset lapped
Half-sunken ships of war.

All around the apes had gathered
Seeking diamonds in the sand;
A summer soft with yellow mist
Had strewn a cast of fallen crabs
Like helmets on the strand.

She played the tricks of light and shade,
A silhouette in gold amidst
The remnants of the battles won;
Her veils were like wisps of smoke
That wafted from her wrists.

Across the strand the scattered gems
Caught glints as day was done,
And singly set the star that bathed
The swaying dancer and her troop,
All apes of yellow sun.

This is a amazing poem Casey. You create wonderful characters and your create visions for the reader.
"She played the tricks of light and shade,
A silhouette in gold amidst
The remnants of the battles won;
Her veils were like wisps of smoke
That wafted from her wrists."
I did like the above lines. Maybe we are just a wisp of smoke. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.
