Coraline Sings


Coraline carves music out of granite
by blowing kisses with tectonic patience
onto every succumbing shoreline
that have felt the soles of lovers
standing pillar posted faithful
staring blindness into submission
at horizons hiding history and others
long since gone

Hear Coraline sing the ballad of waves
crashing her kisses on bare rock and
sloping sand so seemingly eternal
wearing them down to erase
the memory of sorrowed soles
patiently waiting on shores decreasing
for a pocketful of folly dreams
long since gone

Coraline whispers her soothing song
into hearts of her children waiting
for a tomorrow that will never come
Be still my hearts, be dry my tears
yesterday took, the next dawn will give
and breathe a new haven to contain
all your jubilance and love regarded
long since gone
