Golden dappled thoughts of love
by David Taylor
sparkle on the smooth lagoon,
sheltered from the raging surf
which glints on my horizon's noon.
You are my reef and ocean too
and show me on that sun kissed shore
your love for me and I for you;
and yet I feel there is much more.
The smoothness of your waters near
with shallow safe and quietened roar,
are no different from those depths
on which the raging surf is swept.
Quell my fear and guide me true
across that barrier which is yours too,
that I might dive beneath the swell
and find that deepest depth of you.
