Copper Sky

The cracked bells
Clang in the breeze
Over gurgling streams
Sliding down paving cracks
Past paper stacks
Flowing to the sea;
The seething surging sea
Frothing over rugged rocks
And stone-hewn blocks.

cooper1_400Glistening
Over coloured shells
And morning swells
That splash and frolic
In the sun on coral reefs,
The copper sky aglow.

The cracking hull
And smashing crates
That creak and bob
Among the waves.

Floating,
Bobbing,
Surging,
Singing.

The siren song,
The maiden's song;
That sang and
Drank,and
Danced their fill,
Turning circles 
In the sand.

The burgundy
And magenta colours
Bleeding on her lips;
Loving deeply,
Living richly.

Carried away,
Wafting and cascading
Over salty promenades;
Cleansing urban decay
From blue-red neon signs;
That flap,slap, and
Crackles in the breeze
To the gentle sway
Of palm trees on the bay.

The cracked bells clang,
The maidens sang:
The copper sky aglow.
