Evening by the Atlantis

Cloud Surreal Fish Wood Structure River Dream

The tide is strong
Waves ebb,

Rustling belt
Splashes against the heart,

The stretching eyes
Search vacantly

Staring at the water,
Its restless motion
Giving the indignant feel

Inviting his nomad
To share the ethos of
A wailing thought
Face to face with the tormented sea

Give ways to invigorate

As you bring me
To the sea shore.
