The Old fisherman

A lone fisherman gazing at the bay
Bays that hold forever secrets
Secrets that only the dolphins may keep
Keeping the great sperm whale amused by its dives
Dives that only the watchmen will see from the lighthouse
Lighthouses that speak to the black abyss of ships
Ships that comb the water with gymnastic movement
Movements that only the meadow grass can teach
Teachings of the grey sketchy sky to stay ashore
Ashore is where the sand owns its safekeep of shells
Shells that own magnificant pearls of shades of blue
Blue skies of passanger pegions
Pegions that own the great tales of emperors and kings
Kings that has beheaded queens
Queens that has served the lands
Lands that the old fisherman kindles bright
Brightly kindled by the stars at night
Night in which the old fisherman can not control
Control that is only by the gods and heaven
Heavens that take the old fishermen away….
……Away into a forever Bay
