floating

picasso-ocean

Pissarro

I am a buoy
upon azure sea
tethered secure
to rock beneath me

bantered by waves
indiscriminate blows
i sway and list
among flotsam throes

slow dark ships
gently shall pass
clamoring travelers
vainly amass

i wish i could hold each
and tell them of love
talk of starlit nights
from heaven above
