BENEATH

 

 

BENEATH

 

Penetrating broken dreams

the haunting squawking bawls of gulls

which sail and soar in squalling winds

that scatter stones on shifting sands’

 

Trapped below its mighty weight

reflecting greys of wrought iron skies

the sheet steel sea plays make believe

as mournful mermaids gasp for air.
