I flounder alone
in the sea of dismay
floating on swells that lift my being
but not my soul

though walls of water that have no doors
my ship of dreams
slowly sinks under the blanket of evening
I sleep yet am awake

fingers of a vile wind
tear its silken sails
and send ribbons
across a dark sea like frenzied seagulls

through the long night
away from the nightmare
I float into a golden ocean
where red hibiscus fall from azure skies

and gentle hands of Posiden
pull me onto white sands
where Apollo shines eternally
in this forgotten jewel of the Pacific
