Far-off Shores



 Soaking in the silver silence of time's newest triumph...
at least, trying to, in between the escalating traffic-tempest

It is still,
Save for the trill of bird
And the blurred beginnings
Of another day
Filling crook and curve

Where silver-soft, aloft
Over croft,
City-scape and sea
The robe of dreamland’s lea
Is doffed

And into dawn’s saffron ilk
The traffic roars,
Severing the silk of silence
Like night shorn
From far-off shores
