Waiting on a Fool


a concrete heart waiting in ebony night on winged-flight, softening in calm's dreamy thought. One grain of sand becomes a glistening pearl, over the years, an aging restlessness wrought in moonlit tides and cyclic wave-drenched hours. Harsh winds have blown smooth and soft breezes cool. Then across hands of time, shades of dawn unfurl, waiting until the sun sets on a fool. He who loves with fury, unabandoned. The man who names his own waking despair. The one called a fool, a true dying breed. He waits for beauty and passion without care. One glistening pearl waiting amongst grains of sand. An artist's gem uncovered from the hardened land.
