To a Goddess

Emanuel E. Garcia – TRANSCEND Media Service

Greying gleaming silk the waters of this evening,
Shroud-like mists, their white along the distant line
And closing in

So smooth the crescents folding forward as I swam
No thought but sweeping arms and curvature and hollows
Taking on the dark and light

Until a flash from far and gone and near another
So I pause, the grey-white-silver skies and sea
Are one, and I

And there they rise in pairs,
Their arc a herald or a miracle reminding
On this silken gently rippling threshold
Of our quests and beauty’s solace
And our cries

Far out from land I gazed and followed them
As long as heart could bear of gladness,
Still a moment, then I turn

Perhaps you saw me as I stepped ashore
Ravaged by mists and joy and the glowing dark,
You heard and saw,
My dear companion of the sea and sky

  1. Edward Curtin says:

    A poem as beautiful and deep as this is beyond commentary. One should read it again and again.

  2. Eden Maxwell says:

    Seeing the divine in nature is a meditation and a prayer that poet Garcia shares with us all.
