among grey pebbles

smoothed by cold waves

beneath cold grey skies of a Baltic beach

amber glows

with the light of the past

 

in the great green forest

a pine tree seeped and wept

aeons of golden blood

insect sarcophagus

sunset caught in a transparency

 

time past

amber light and silence

except for the wind in the trees

and birdsong

and the grinding of grey pebbles

 

on the cold beach turnstones

turn

stones

searching for boneless food

not amber

 

pick up the stone

colour of twilight

washed glass-smooth by cold waves

beneath a grey sky

and dream of lost forests
