The Gaze

The Searing Gaze, Seaside Creek Beach, Mendocino County, Pacific Coast Highway, California, United States of America
The fire came down
From burning sky
Across a boiling sea

And I
Upon the shore

Felt the searing gaze of shame


I whispered to my heart
As I breathed the cool sea air

That eye is but your own
Turned upon you
By the shameful one

Searing Gaze
