One island's tale

- by Ivan Nikolic 59

Only boats catch connotes of the island's sober wines
Only ships wrap the slips on the cleats of twining lines
Only flags flap in tags with color that assigns
Only passage on vessel's message part waters it enshrines.

Yes, the waves wash the staves in pulling swimmer's hand
Yes, relief from basking grief slides the sole through sand
Yes, the sigh of few but nigh observers refuse to stand
Yes, they too joined but flew above the heated land.

Ringing bell invites the swell sailors to pubs' clashing mugs
Ringing bell on churches expel doves by pulling tugs
Ringing bell causes hell to whimsy sagging thugs
Ringing bell on schoolyards tell of cycles of the bugs.

Who knows what this stows or not in the end
Who knows what he grows in plows of manured blend
Who knows how she shows to solicitous eyes what to send
Who knows what they chose to defend or pretend.

Just the ships dock from trips in the port swelled in hurry
Just the ferry blows the merry arrivals of the surrey
Just the craft barely staffed curses but with slurry
Just to find that their bind is recurrently blurry.

The calling

- by Lonelygirlxoxo 58

The waves whisper to me, calling me to the soft sand.
The water sweeps over my feet, surrounds where I stand.

The breeze caresses my face, whips my hair.
The wind encloses my body, acknowledging I'm there.

The clouds clotting out the sun, turning gray with anger.
The sky no longer blue, a clear warning of danger.

The rain pelting my skin, as cold as ice.
The water seeping in my bones, undeniably concise.

The world calling to me, pulling me out.
The atmosphere thicker, it's my sorrow no doubt.

The waves grew higher, crashed over my head.
The breath blown away, unmistakably dead.
