Alone On A Crystal Shore.                                                       
By Rodney A. Brubaker

On beauty I step...                                                                                          
Moments in the sand...
Like dust of diamonds...
Their twinkle reflects the stars above....
An answer to the call....
Dark velvet blue waters wash upon this shore.....
The distant mystical world on which I stand....
I find forever in this now....
Time walks with me......
By myself....
I am not alone....
The sky watches as I dream...
I hope you dream with me...
Rocks like black shadows wait along the shore....
The waves come....
Water turns to light by the power of a moon....
Then fades away as the wave descends back into the sea....
I can see no reason to turn back.....
The tower draws me on.....
A silent sentinel over the beach....
From the ocean I can hear the faint whisper of a song.....
Voices of the whales in their sleep.....
Do they dream of of you and me.......
The tower's eye looks out......
Gazing into the deep........
For what it hopes would not be there.....
In those depths there are things it can not see....
So the night passes.....
The wind sends the grains through time's glass.....
Dawn will be here soon....
And with it a different color sand....
