The Island

The Island

getframephp.jpg

Once there was an island

With tranquil distant shores

A place filled with beauty

Where love set all the laws

Sitting within an ocean

Both hidden and obscure

Serenity always beckoned

Above the ocean floor

Palms swinged and swayed

Dancing all as one

On this tropical Nirvana

A jewel beneath the sun

I saw it in my dreams

I walked those sandy shores

I felt the soothing breeze

I watched in silent pause

The blue waves shimmered

Rolling along the beach

Bringing with them calm

Then ebbing out of reach

This island was within me

It soothed me to my soul

It gave me sanctuary

From life's demanding role

Others sometimes saw it

When looking deep within

Glancing at it's beauty

They'd share a knowing grin

Over time this island

It's land began to sink

Returning beneath the waves

Becoming indestinct

I never saw it happen

So gradual and slow

One day when I looked

It vanished down below

Swallowed by the ocean

Beneath it's fluid glare

There's nothing left to see

However long I stare

Is it lost forever

There is no guarantee

Somewhere down below

It rests inside of me

Arcana this is a lovely piece, written no doubt from the soul of a lovely man.

I started off thinking 'how lovely', as I read more I could feel the mood in your words changing, when I reached the end I thought 'how sad'.

It's a beautiful poem Arcana covering a mix of emotions. It's really great to see you back on here :)
