The Sound of Peace

by Bobbi Sinha-Morey

From where I am a pale
sunset is barely seen through
the trees and an isle apart
from the coast is its own arch
of land; the scents of the sea
so inviting I take my small craft
of a boat out on the water, and for
each hour I have, I explore what's
there before me: the sunlight's
reflection on a rainbow rock,
a stone angel garnered in violets,
rings of them all around her,
and as I draw halfway near
the lonely isle, I hear no echoes
of terns, no wind anywhere to
tip my boat over, and I reflect
on dreams my heart grows by.
Me, the pilot of time before me,
and the patience learned to make
my time last, the sound of peace
I revel in that inhabits the day,
and my stay on such a small
island lit only by God's restful
