Pearl Rose

Pearl Rose

By rose´s golden fragrance of dew

Petals in powdery breaths

Whisper to each other: Bloom late!

Coiled in spirals, the rope

Tied in a sailor´s knot around

The cross, the stalk, centred

Sails folded on towed vessels

By fishermen, rigged at dawn

A beautiful day at the ocean

Iridescence, washed opal

Turtle shells, mother of pearl

Button bullets beached

Lined pastel tokens, held

Light home, lucidity,

Pilgrim of the sea!
