the last rays of sunlight catch your wind swept hair for a moment
waves crash with such violence against the shore beneath you
but you don’t hear them or see them
your eyes search in the dusky twilight, questing for the forever unseen
without fail you will watch that invisible horizon for any hope
patient like the sea, you stand in memoriam to what you have lost
a forgotten soul trapped in grief, casting salty tears into a salted ocean
the hours tick past, the cold biting into your skin without relief,
but then, the sky opens up with dazzling colors dancing endlessly
it comes alive, flaunting it’s vibrance to your tired eyes and you sigh
the briefest moment of relief is found, knowing that in all this nothing
there can be such beauty and life to guide lost souls home

a piece for Sigyn, l.h.
