Dervishes collecting sky,
sea and shore-tossed orchids
Casting Sufi smiles, pearls and patience
to those hidden in the wave’s barrel.
Lifting lantern flames to meet strummed
sea glass, verdant fingers reach to capture
sand and seaweed. Turbaned shells sigh
while coral crushes under, deflecting
moonlight and surrendering to salted
sliver torrents. Collapsing conch shell
rests as the muted tide retreats.

TruthTell all the Truth but tell it slant— Success in Circuit lies Too bright for our infirm Delight The Truth's superb surprise As Lightning to the Children eased With explanation kind The Truth must dazzle gradually Or every man be blind— ~Emily Dickinson
