Rapture on the Shore: A Sonnet

A lone spirit wanders the foamy line

Heart adrift, floating between sand and sea

Trod shattered mountains and slick gems of brine

Timeless messengers take my soul to thee

Mortal coil spun between heaven and earth

Escape the unreal web of illusions

Draped over my innocent eyes since birth

Uncover the mystic in seclusion

Touching wordless worlds whirling round and round

Revealing truths in shimmering soul-light

Showing me how to live with love unbound

Soothing my worrying mind with delight

Long days alone aren’t as isolating

Since a loving universe is waiting
