Swansong Of The Sea

Poem By Santiago Villafania

That night I heard the swansong of the sea
the erolalias of nameless lovers
stealing a heaven and eternity

there was a crysong of a pilgrim bird
that punctuated the silence of the night
but the winds and the waves whispered a hush

I waited for the waking of the day
feeling the breathing of the earth beneath
the palpitations of the Milky Way
then Atlas moved a finger and it came
the gyrations and the
sudden trembling
O the sea had wings of a tsunami!

death came without warning or a reason
to those who heard the psalms of oblivion

and then I heard the swansong of the sea
and the crysongs of those who went away

Midnight wind
bring her this breath of jasmine
return with her kiss

Sonnet To A Pilgrim Soul

When the sun gilds the sky in the morning
And deep darkness makes a noble retreat
O hear the music in the air fleeting
For you can never recapture the beat
