Silent Scream

Her silent scream
Like a plunging dagger
Drove deep into my
Flesh under the aromatic
constellation_400Swaying palms and frangipanis
Splashing on the rocks
And cracked lizard skins;
As we measured the
Summer flows
And lava glow
Of that languid
Hot summer.

The smoke
Drifting among
The green foliage,
Wrapped in textured
Flavours mingling with
Oregano and thyme;
The trees bristling
Luminescent under
A dripping orange sky;
The clouds scudding
Along, racing like delicate
Stallions over the shore.

The ghost ships
Floating and dance
With tattered sails,
Turrets and barrels
Rolling on the deck
Crunching bleached bones
And precious stones;
Floating, floating
On the horizon.

We
Measured
Them all
That summer
To the sounds
Kettle drums
And Jamaican rum
Tumbling in glasses
On rustic bars.

The billowing sails,
Pantaloons and
Dresses swirling
Like a kaleidoscope
Of colours in
An intoxicating
Summer breeze.

I can still hear
Her silent scream
Like a plunging dagger
Driving deep into my
Flesh under the aromatic
Swaying palms and frangipanis
Splashing on the rocks
And cracked lizard skins
Under a dripping orange sky;
The clouds scudding
Along, racing like delicate
Stallions over the shore.
