Eternity's Beaches

.


I stood on sunsets beach, gulls circling, 
skimming wavelets, 
hovering fish husks...long gone.
One, lone feather, spiraling ocean incense
of lost continents at rest...out there....
Below dolphins' arced grey backs...horizon storms...
Tucked in my hair....leaving footprints
to sand crabs, I walked far, as stars quietly haloed, 
crowning universes, folding glitter
into the night.

I walked to sunrise stillness, breathlessness.
Mirroring creation...one handful of water.
Down the dunes came a little child
running a kite.
'What do you see? ' Piping tiny.
'Nothing...no, nothing.'

And walked through the child, 
into Eternity.

    Great metaphysical poem about eternity. Great allegorical and symbolical devices. Sincerely, Alex Roth

    Thank you for your comment. Recovering nicely. Now my cat, Tat, the Manx, had a hysterectomy and is recovering nicely too. When I can catch her for her meds!

    Good Morning! Caught me awake, that's a start. Recuperating from an operation. Thank you for the in-depth comment. Not too, too many people catch the mesmerizing part.
