JUST WORDS

What is this poetry I write
I never get it right
The sunshine just out of sight
Clouded by the burden
Of words that harden
Into clots of ink, pardon
My startled attempts
By floating them
In shrouds of prose
And never a summer rose.

There is a mist in my eyes
Murmuring meaningless cries
Shaking out a tear that dries
Deserted by its dream
Even before it may seem
Dissolved into a stream
That momently flows
Lingering like light
Into a sea that might
Sink all ships one night.

It is my love
I grow with care
Someday it may bloom
And give me some room
To cast anchor
And step ashore
To settle my sorrow
In a vision, a grail,
A tomorrow…

Till then, I shall sail…
