DOWN BY THE SEASHORE by jjméndez

DOWN BY THE SEASHORE

I want to go there… there where
the somber light in the horizon dissolves
where the wind sleeps and dreams
of fallen leaves that no longer breathe.

I want to spend the day by the cliff
seeing the sea waves roar in silence
where the seagulls hover above the X 
marking the place of the sunken ship and its treasure
where tiny fish roam in the crevice the captain claimed.

I want to clasp in my left hand
the crystal drop of time forgotten
and caress its ticking heart with my right
and carry it to the murky borderlands of space
and hand it over to the supreme essence
that is both heat and intense frost…
