Buried Treasures
  JERRY BROWNING  

 ..FOLLOWING SEAS   

 

Buried Treasures
 

my sailing days
lay numbered now
I stroll the weathered decks
eyes strain
to gain worn focus
of yard armsí silhouette

diamonds form
a frigid sky
our wake bleeds
silver streaks
across a calm horizon
and we pray to god
she keeps

an untied line
flaps in the breeze
tapping out the ancient code
to men who trade
a cozy life
for treasures
of the soul

farewell sea mistress
and sweet illusions
i donít need
your chests of gold

Somewhere in the middle
of the Atlantic Ď89
