The Storyteller’s Abode (Louise)

——-

Hidden between rocks, the ocean —

Returns a treasure. 

A time piece once given.

——

A woman’s long hair blows,

Trailing in winds. 

She inspects the pocket watch —

——-

Before dropping it off the —

Cliff it tumbles, 

Onto rocks, clattering sounds lost —

——-

In the darkness of nights, 

Grip so intense.

Ocean steals the pocket watch —

——

Woman stares down below peering —

Her Grandfather’s watch,

Forever lost, his presence grieved.

—–

Into cold bitter waters enclosing,

Covered in waves. 

Gone for years, taken away.

——

Now a small boy picks up —

A watch and —

Smiles, his new treasure found. 

——-

Dangling it infront of him he —

Puts it to —

His ear; ticking, never stopped.
