Week 44 – Ashley Davene

Posted: January 29, 2012 in Ashley Davene, Week 44

All Ties Cast Off

Sky lit up as the boat pulled away from the shore

Rolling on a waves end cap

An afternoon that felt like it would always be an afternoon

Had started to drift into night

Clouds melted into a hazy blue

Languid air

A horizon that burned ahead with a sparkling fire

The moon stood full faced above me

The wooden boat a dish

Stars cascading over

Land broke flush against a deep horizon

seen through wonders shadowy lens

Whispering words

Rolling like the drops of melted dew

flowing like a sweet southern muddy river

Calling me inward

I went

An endless sea a dropping anchor

Beyond An echoing shore

The vessel pulled round

The land and the sea

for a time, were mine

and now all ties cast off

from shore
