“Water Prayer” – to Dylan Thomas, Son of the Sea, poem by Lidia Chiarelli, Italy

Water Prayer

to Dylan, Son of the Sea

Seagulls and restless rooks

challenge the wind

on this winter morning.

Under a pearl sky

the waves sing the rising sun –

the first glimpse of light on the horizon

  fades too soon.

Here and now

Dylan’s words resound:

The waters of the heart

push in their tides…*

And from the ancient cliff

I pause and listen to

the voice of the sea:

a water prayer

that softly evaporates

among the fleeing clouds.

*from: Light breaks where no sun shines

Lidia Chiarelli, Italy
