Sanctuary

by Liam Maloney




A castaway finds a shore
and is immediately affected.

Suddenly alive, this is his first and last.
Gentle waters warm the coldest nights
and he is soothed.



Everything she does
is a smooth jewel
awaiting discovery,
each precious day with her
tells him
what his heart always knew:
She is beautiful.
