and a thousand more

the aurora of day rose
crimson across the ivory veil
of half clouded skies

the horizon seemed endless
atop the blue water
its light reflected back
between the peaks
of waves that tumbled forward
wet-kissing the sand 

the howl of the ocean
fell silent
beneath the pause of wind
as did my heart
in realizing the distance
is greater between us
than what i see 
before my own eyes

the salty spray
mingled with the tears
that traced my face
as i mourned
more than a thousand days
that you've been gone

    The first time that I read this, I thought to myself, I could pick this apart. The fifth time I thought I could offer some tweaking. Now I find myself saying you better leave it as it is. This poem is perfect in every way, shape and form. Don't change a word. It's moving. It's literary and most of all, it's poetic in its descriptive terms. I will read more.

    I wasn't expecting the ending you laced here. Sigh.......this was incredibly stunning. You built your sand castle to the sky here.
