From Whence It Came

A summer night, I strolled the beach
The moon it hung just out of reach
The ocean breeze was warm and calm
That night I walked beneath the palm
Sea-scented mist caressed my nose
With sandy sand between my toes
A subtle sound my ears did hear
Unearthly, primal, stirring fear
Cold sweat upon my brow did bead
My steps hastened with panic speed
From whence it came I know not where
At once it stood before me there
I saw no eyes, yet it saw me
No ears to hear my feeble plea
It had no mouth yet spoke one word
“Return”, it said… that’s what I heard
It left as swiftly as it came
Like gold or youth or fleeting fame
From whence it came I do not know
The sea, the sky, or ground below
A mark it left upon my soul
The memory that takes its toll
It shall return to me once more
Some night upon that sandy shore
And should it beckon, I shall go
But as to where – I do not know…
