Ode to Sand

Another Life of Pi poem since I haven't posted in three weeks; activity's been low on my part but I've far from given up on KP. Here's something to hold y'all over. Just imagine a castaway coming to shore...



Ode to Sand

 

Oh, sweet deliverance!

That I would ever be so glad for

the vast stretch of coarse, rough sand.

Oh, bittersweet deliverance,

my only company abandoning me

leaving me utterly alone

if not for this stretch of sand I have come to

I would be drowning, swallowed

by the darkness alone

but for this fair expanse of sand,

soft and firm, the cheek of God

to which He has delivered me

Sand, the blessing of God which

smiles upon me, sand which has been

out of reach, but which kept me alive

to come this far, oh sand!

The shining heavens and glittering sea,

the angels which carried me here to God and

the sweet embrace for which I have been longing.


There's four more of these I'll post when I can.

Wow this is really good!

Wow this is really good! I’m not sure what to put as cc because a) I can’t think of anything and b) I’m not that good at writing poems but I really like a lot of your poems and the metaphors you include.

but this is so good spoken

but this is so good spoken aloud

are you getting into a particular character's mind? even a half-formed character that's just "sailor that got shipwrecked?" because usually i think you're writing from your own perspective, so this is a nice change!
