my inner self

people say

as so they may

I've lost

the will

the heart

to write

so dark

the world

seems now


perhaps they are right


but in the heathered

mist of mind

bog blinded

salt tinged

the waves still roar

where'er I be


the gulls soar abuse

on shallow sands

where lions' manes

cast spume

into my eyes

and skylarks

keep me company



I seek them


'midst the dismal

city clouds

'midst the unseeing

blanked eyes

of those

who care not

the river's wrack

and endless

ageless wonder

caress moments

spent alone

as nature feeds

my inner self
