*Her Sparkling Eyes*

For my daughter

Along the shore of life,
as well as any other shore,
there is sand and there are sea shells.
And there are screams.
The screams of seagulls,
those weird birds,
all alone in their affection to severe weather,
looking forward to the thunder and storms.

There is also seagrass at that shore.
An unfilled need of being loved.
Seagrass. The stranded passenger
abandoned of the waves,
now fading in the sun
upon the warm salty stones.

The grains of worries
always piling up
as we travel the road.
And turn into the wet castles of unrest,
teasing our souls,
our impatience.
never harming love.

Pierced by distress
we sometimes try to escape away.
Like birds
seeking out for the clouds.
We search a refuge,
a sanctuary
that would ease the pain.
And then we end
inside our own imagination.

But there are some rare pearls
out there in the sand.
The jewels emerged from the depth
of our restless ocean.
Precious and dear.
The jewels we had been given
in spite the instantaneity we are exposed to,
despite the frailty of our life.

Along the shore of this life,
as well as any other shore,
there are dunes of setbacks
and there are foaming waves of joy.

Her eyes sparkling in the night,
her laughter warming the soul.
A sunrise of relief
She is loved
and safe.
My castle upon the shore of life
still defies the storm.
