Alone in a sea of people
I swim through the crowd

Through the broken glass beach
of my dreams

The sky is naked and the rain

The winter stripped the trees
and left them asleep

The night hushed the wolf, the mare, the sun
It stole the light of the moon and stars

In the darkness I master her fire
and her smile, her little vessel
Guides me to the leafy isles of her soul

    AJ, this is your first posting in a while and it is BRILLIANT!! Your metaphors capture the fatality of the human condition and yet you leave the reader with gentle, mystical optimism. Good work, AJ. Your continued maturity personally and as an artist remains apparent. Looking forward.
