Of(f) Distant Shores

moonlight’s silent song wrapped in waves
whispers unheard ‘cross darkened waters
we thrive – and dive in deep
pulled from our very core – words
surface like dolphins; taste salty freedom
their birth infinitesimal grains
to scatter upon perception’s cliff

snowballing they solidify
wide open mouths as we
inhale the moon –
and leave
our lament
to
the
sea

About Miriam E.

Somewhere along the way, I started writing. If you care to look beyond the jokes & smiles, you will find me a bit of an introvert, spinning through life one clumsy step at a time, fortunate to not have skinned my knees one too many times yet. When everything gets a little too drowned out by the white noise of this planet, I tend to reassemble myself at the keyboard in an attempt to slow down & breathe. English is my second language. I love how it feels on my tongue and how the words can be shaped and sculpted, so be patient with me — I am experimenting. Enjoy, if you will. Miriam
