Mother Earth and Father Time

Mother Earth and Father Time

A Poem by BeetleBug
"

Sestina

"

In the dawn of the spring

A chill will blow through the sky

Waves of wind will hit the sea

And calm will come in the fall

No one sees this but you

Until I take a look through your eyes

 

And in those earth bound eyes

I find bright colors of the spring

How lovely it is to see you

Your face as wide as the sky

I hope it shall never fall

Deep, deep beneath the sea

 

At the bottom of the sea

You see the fish with eyes

Of dull colors from the fall

But life alive as in the spring

And vast shades of blue from the sky

No one can see this but you

 

Some may not believe you

That you made this vast sea

And the birds in the sky

Some may not believe their eyes

Even though there is light in spring

And a glow in the fall

 

I will see you in the fall

I will see all shades of you

I will see you in the spring

I will see you in the sea

I will look into the sky

I will see your majestic eyes

 

What will I find in the sky?

What will I find in the fall?

What will I find in your eyes?

What will I find in the spring?

What will I find in the sea?

Other than the majestic you

 

From this will spring the sky

And the deep sea will fall

Only you have such eyes.
