Reminiscence of a Child’s Moment

in Twelve’s Ocean

Redondo Beach, California

Sharifah C. Rosso

Pressure-sensitive vibrations of astral-coloured lights
Sift through mazes of golden-tinted blue seas,
With swimmed fins softened by Death’s quiet touch.

Reaching, stretching, grasping for blinded life’s beam,
This straightened vertebrae has now gone limp,
From etching diseased stained remains….

With bulging eyelids, popped crystal balls,
Now it’s covered with slight reflecting, skimmed slime,
(And Mind has glided through this space, too)
And, what appears as skeletal has only embalmed Life, ItSelf,
Floating across trans-universalities and astranautical worlds,
Drifting though it seems, skying is what it is to be….

Frictioned clinging has melted within its crystal foliage,
With form abandoned content, content flipping unto itSelf,
And tossed dream-filled nights, become dream’s reality….
No more patience required of this dolphined being!
No more thought-conquered emotions!
No more conscious recognition ignited flames’ triggered memories….

Seas drift unto seas, as clothed density shifts its mortality,
And fins become winged knowledge,
And sorrow:
Joy, refracted into rainbow’s medians.

Freedom from rolling emerald green hills,
(Though beautiful they seem)
Immortality is the dream come to be seen,
And foam’s ocean’s shores are no longer unique….

Identity has blown its glazened bubble off course,
Longitudinal direction has become its own reflection,
Omnipresence has shown its light…
And, Truth, it is known as bubble motions forth its home,
No longer drifting from sea to sea,
But merged into Oneness,
At last, eternally free.

Movement 1.
"Lo, The Unbounded Sea"
LO! the unbounded sea!
On its breast a Ship starting, 
spreading all her sails -- an ample Ship, 
carrying even her moonsails;
The pennant is flying aloft, 
as she speeds, she speeds so stately -- 
below, emulous waves press forward,
They surround the Ship,
 with shining curving motions, and foam.

Movement 2.
"The Untold Want"
The untold want by life and land ne'er granted,
Now voyager sail thou forth to seek and find.

Movement 3.
"Joy, Shipmate, Joy!"
Allegretto Molto, Molto Meno

Joy! shipmate - joy
(Pleas'd to my Soul at death I cry;)
Our life is closed - our life begins;
The long, long anchorage we leave,
The ship is clear at last - she leaps!
She swiftly courses from the shore;
Joy! shipmate - joy!
