My Translocated Tomorrow

On the rhythm of rolling waves of tidal time I float, drenched in the chromatic cadence of the setting sun. Before the ebb takes me beyond the misty horizon, I search for fervent anchorage on her seraphic shore. Through the slanted shower of the twilight shimmer, my fragile footprints follow her lengthening shadow, melting in mystic night under the mellow moonshine, forlorn alley of my dreams lights up in stardust spark. The new sun returns on the edge of color-splashed sky, sprinkles the splendor of spectral hue on drops of dew. In my malachite meadow no longer morose, I find her, sparkling like pearl with the patina of pristine fervor. At the lingering periphery of my lonesome present time, shades of grey dissolve, my beguiled senses don’t belie, haze lifts from dawning day, I see my tomorrow glow like 'a smile on her face and a gleam in her eye.'
