Swell

Beneath this slumbering, sleeping sea
Angelic voices whisper back at me
These tides at rest are calmer now
The ebbing madness
Fades to dawn….

And here beneath the shimmering mirror
Refracted lights dance silver steps
A coral fanfare for the sleepy heads
With kaleidoscopic colours spread

This beast caged so appearances seem
Raw power tamed in a precarious sheen
Wild winds intense on a distant shore
Bring the earliest foretelling
Of an angry storm…

And here where silent becalming reigns
The maelstrom brewing unshackles chains
We wake like jetsam from the deep
Refreshed like Seraphim from our sleep
