WORDS ON DRIFTWOOD BLEACHED WHITE

[Blank Verse in Trochaic Trimeter]

Words on a windswept shore

Words scribed in brown pigment

Words on a wood casket

Words on cedar faded white.

Words in saltwater inscribed

Words of a son returned

Words penned in icy brown foam

Words held in fond memory.

Words that escaped the sea

Words of a fool’s disjecta

Words of bewilderment

Words a spent man haply wrote.

Words that cup him in sleep

Words that will not disturb

Words fixed in rain stitched sand

Words etched in shadows cold.

Words swing him quiet and mute

Words lull him lull him low

Words nuzzle and warn his soul

Words lull him lull him low.
