In the Sea and Beyond










In vain

I waited

For the firmament

To open.


I searched high and low

Looking for the key,

In the greenest mountains then

In the bluest seas.


I begged the sands to show me.

I feared the waves were making trouble

In connivance

With the Hawaiian seals.


I saw them barricading

The shores of Waimea;

Capitalizing on torts

Jerking my hopes.


Never knowing

He was

At the other side

Of the shore.


Never knowing

His heart held the key

And clamped onto his soul

Was the chain to earth’s glories.


Never knowing

In his eyes,

Was the firmament,

A heaven long waiting to shine on me.


Now my lips hold the key; 

As I approach kissing his lids,

The firmament closes

And he falls to sleep so quick.
