Luminary

Luminary.
Silent anchor,
solo anchor,
occasionally shuddering
through the currents,
twirling,
stirring.

Fierce waters.
Waters that take,
waters the beckon,
waters that break.

The feeding birds,
bird of incandescent
survival.
The humble bird
grinding winds.
A southern wind
cleansing. Wind-funnelled
coalescence,
isolated wind
gathering,
migrating a
luminary
dreamscape.
