Lost

Silver in moonlight

The still sea reflects the stars

Hope, love’s bright mirror

 

Keeper of dreams, witch

Calypso whispers softly

Come sleep on my shore

 

Eat the wild fruit, live

Drink the lotus nectar, rest

In the sweet perfume

 

Step into heaven

The deep green horizon, pure

Beneath the banyan

 

While Penelope

Waits, and the light slips away

Crashing on the shoals
