Sifting Azure in a Wish

The sand tries to come out

blur thought that lies in underworld

water embraces your tomorrows

but dust obscures what could be

leaving you to find path

into an ocean that keeps changing tides

home seems so far away, and yet

it’s around the next bend.

Keep trying

trust your wishes

they will fly above foam and wave

guiding you back to gates of longing

where you can enter

and reach fingertips

for ivy leaves that still wait

for your touch.

Now is the time

to seek love

sift through blue,

hope lingers inside dark glow

yellow breaks spirit free

a hue to have and hold

for now,

into forever.
