Sea Fire | Memanggang Laut

By and | 31 October 2020

Sky stained violet-pink

ball of flame
explosion rolling
into the ocean.

Pink sinking runny
into burnt orange
as melted crayon,
as leaky glow stick,
setting the sea alight.

Look up: home
like a map
to the heavens.

The stars
nothing more
than curious angels
beaming down on us

a giant shroud
of breath
of vapour
of risen water
embracing the Earth,

like hope,
like God-language,

like perfect balance.

Like a promise
that, once broken,
would make all corners
of the earth tremble
under our feet.
