Stillness ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #167

On some unseen horizon
Beyond my peace of mind
Where shadows play
In savage grey
And hope has not yet
Even hope

No flutter on the water
No ripple in the wind
No fish or whale
To breech the sea
No gull on wing
To cry the air alive
No colour falls to eye

In this world
Of nothingness
In stillness
Drifted I

Aboard a ship
No sails were set
Devoid of all intent
My mind awash
In listless thought
No acts of love
From feckless heart

Yet all the while
And deep below
This ship becalmed
My spirit spare
A current

Forces unbeknown
Which bubbled to the top

Desire

Where the filtered sun
Casts mountains blue
Across this deepest valley
Beyond a distant shore
The clouds so busy gathering
While here the skies so clear

But there I know she waits for me
Climb down, then sail, then climb again
Enwrapped within her arms
Perhaps by then the rain will come
Reverberant charms upon the tin
In rivulets down window pane
Lay with her in such sweet refrain
Flames crackling in the hearth

I feel the heat
Hot on my flesh
Alas it’s but the sun
It fuels a fire
Within my heart
Upon this rocky bluff
