The Treasure

from the collection, Stumbling into Shadows © 2002

.

(an extended haiku)

.

The treasure of one
Hundred thousand sunken ships
Quietly awaits

.

This weary trav’ler
In the dark abyss of your
Mysterious eyes.

.

Grant me its entrance,
Lay quiet those raging waves,
Let me dive headfirst

.

Into the blue deep –
Led by the vivid heartlight
of unselfish love.

.

Keep not this treasure
locked up deep within yourself,
share with me instead.

.

For I love you now,
But forever give my oath
To protect your worth.

.

I will not squander,
I will not steal in silence
While you are sleeping.

.

Nor will I grow tired,
My eyes blind to the brightness
Of such a treasure.

.

I will cherish you
And invest in your full love
‘Til gold shines no more.

.
