Until Kingdom Come

tranquility

words eminating

from sandy shells

it’s not music you say

just noise drowned out

by vultures and gulls

on an enormous rock
she sits
staring into space
only the stars she cannot
see

the melody is heard
as she gracefully
sways to the calming
chimes
the ones she has heard many times
before

”rescue me”
she whispers
the chopper hovers over her
though by no surprise
she refuses
to lift her delicate
face

it’s too late
all is sealed
in a time capsule
only to be reopened
in kingdom come
