Prompt: Tribute

A tribute to nothing
Though I understand it not
But it stands in the morning
That keeps coming back
Reminding me of days
When you sat down
Saying nothing
But I listened to your heart
Flutter

A tribute to nothing
Though I know it not
But it stands on the waves
Beating the sandy shore
Going back to begin again
From nothing

A scarred moon
That lives breathing our sun
Pushing the waves to beat
Against the clustering sand
A multiplex of our world
Not excluding the buoyancy
Of the moon that embraces
The vext sea

A tribute to the wreathing sea
In coils of its own making
Earth’s devoted marabout
In shapeless creases adorned
by shadows of the fluid deep
haunted heart in earth’s domain
unfolding in twists the shore
Where you lie naked in the moonlit
serenade
