Island Life

Island Life

A Poem by Lyndsay Castro

I wrote this on a plane


Lonely stranger holding my arms in the depth;

Strung up by my heart for the seagulls to screech at;


I mail my valentines in their scaley claws to unknown lovers;

Writing names in the sand with my toes;


There's no limit to the days ticked off on driftwood calanders;

Crabs scuttle away sideways at my presence and their glass bead eyes expose my nudity;


Echos return to me from caves and mountains, relics of the past, woes cried out to the ocean floor;

No rescue mission or sobbing relatives, no last 'goodbye's to the world.

I think the idea is beginning to form nicely. If you put more more into this piece, I'm sure the powerful feeling of vulnerability would be impressive. I love the images because it beckon's me to find out more. I loved the flow this piece. Thank you for sharing.
