Old Lighthouse of a Rocky Cove

Old Lighthouse of a Rocky Cove in acrylic AVR (50" x 47")

You had your days of the sailing ships,
guiding them all away from danger;
and the rocks had grown passive and kind
unyielding though to time and wear.

I used to climb your spiraling staircase,
and gaze the horizon on your deck;
waiting for sunset and glow of your lamp,
or catch your waning light at daybreak.

But that was many, many years ago,
brave sentinel of sea and sky,
bright and wonder to far, far away land,
perhaps even to angels passing by.

I came home one sunset, and you asked,
where in the world I have long been;
standing tall still, oh, my dear old friend,
light beams coming out of your ruin.~
