The Web Poetry Corner - M A Heathcote - You are our cradle in the water

You are our cradle in the water

by

M A Heathcote

You are my eyes
You are my heaven
You are a sunny distant shore
You are a cradle in the water
Of a rainbow Iíve longed, longed for...

You are the white-salt spray
You are the tidal whirlpool of my day
You are the laurel sea-green waves
Leading me ashore!
Guiding me by these rudderless
Means in answer!
I am but an ever changeling, Adam
Drifting, following the wind; like flotsam,
At the end of a whiskey bar...
I am an orphan and a Chaplin
I am but a broken wreck and more!
You are a cradle in the water
Of a rainbow Iíve longed, longed for...

You are the rain
You are the thunder!
You are the anchor at the end of my chain
You are the sky!
Above and below the oceans
Pearl black sun!
You are the one true island-church,
Without a weathervane!
You are the vault that holds a desert in a grain...
You are a cradle in the water
Of a rainbow Iíve longed, longed for...

You are the mask
Behind the stars constellations
You are a palm of dust
You are a tear turning iron into rust
You are the deserts sand
And the thorn that is a bleeding rose
Eternal in my out stretched hand
But most of all?
You are all of these things in us...
You are the child that is born
Like star to combust!
You are the life that is aflame!
You are the seed, scattered;
Divergent, by just one name
You are our cradle in the water
Of a rainbow weíve all longed, longed for...
