Castaway

Mountain peaks drift
away from earthroots
shimmerveiled seasurfaces
await, indifferent to any sailing.

Shadowed islands
(as unmapped as you and I are)
wait for us to cast our tentative bodies
away from unseen ships.
Crusoe hearts
seeking shore.

– Kay Winter

    “Crusoe hearts” is such a lovely and perfect phrase — it says so much with so few words

      Thank you! That’s what of those things that bubbles up as I write that I sit back and think – “Yeah, don’t know where you came from little phrase, but you are it!”
