neverending thirst | karin taylor

deep beneath the particles of pink
acres of sleep caressed my tired mind’s inklings
but seriously, what’s life without light
I loaded my bones in the car
and headed for the shore of my solace
that familiar place, my anchor
I moored myself there for days
as I had promised earlier
I would sleep on the rocks by the shore
and become like a pillar of salt
none would notice me sitting there
eyes out to sea
on their daily constitutionals
and lover’s romantic trysts
children’s tantrums
I gave up my hold completely
and let the sea air wipe away
an eternity of soul searching
sweeping my head clean
I perched perfectly on the round form
of eroded rocks like turtle backs
enjoying the foam and roar
and softly one by one
the salt particles disintegrated
flowing their dislodged form back
into the ocean, to be consumed
by water’s neverending thirst for things
I left behind the morrow at goodbye’s yesterday
a higher calling in lower case
offered me a suitcase and a ticket to another show
The shade of the sheoak and the calling of wrens
were a source of substance sustaining me

Artist's Description

here I’ve used a sort of word generator to help me with inspiration and to increase my vocabulary, I’m hungry to increase my word knowledge base, and perhaps this will help. I found it a fun and exciting exercise, I enjoyed being able to use words I don’t usually use, to express the mood I felt. Thank you for reading :)
