Harbor From Sea

The harbor, returning from the sea
Bringing the wind across the dock
Far off, a chamber hiding memories
Seeing the dark hole as you walk

Gathering of marbles along the dock
Found precious and priceless pearls
The salt, glistening and visible at the walk
Hidden deep within the swirl

Cave cliffs covered with pale white pearls
Reflecting light to recover broken souls
Hoping to reunite by entering the swirl
Of helpless and needing thought bubbles

All the spirits and shattered souls
Wishing to find parts of their memories
Over surface of water are popping bubbles
The harbor, returning from the sea
