Solitude

A whisper of wind
Enticing breath
An invisible stranger
Familiar embrace
I have felt you before
Dancing with my hair

Pushing me onward
To a place of nowhere
Roaring, rhythm of the sea
Calling out, beckoning
Reaching out
Capturing me

Mysterious castle
Over the abysmal sea
Looking glass walls
Surrounding me
Flickering candlelight
Brooding on the wall

A glowing pearl
In the midst of melancholy
Ivory beauty in an onyx sky
Shining alone
Solitude
Mystery

Property of Joy Elaine -- 1999
