Waves of broken fate flow from the black pit,
Sand-smothering wounds of dark depth’s embrace,
That leave to reveal gold-flecked fields sunlit,
We strip and revel in Sol’s new-filled space.
Sometimes too strong the thick eye of night shines!
Too harsh; aglow but eclipsing below;
And every beach and street darkly declines,
Shadowed life; skin no longer free to show.
But every night ends in resplendent dawn.
Tides retreat to reveal soft sun-kissed sheets.
Our bed; Our home; fair nature’s star-blissed lawn,
We will smile again in Earth’s bright blankets.
Dark water always lifts to skies of life,
Then falls; we drink it, and overcome our strife.
