Looming

This fall’s

first day of loom.

Water warmer

than the air.

A thin

layer,

warmed by contact,

a lens,

bending light

over the horizon,

magnifying

whatever lies beyond its limb.

Distant ships,

land,

float mirage-like

just above the edge of the sea

sawtoothed,

crenelated by loom of far-off waves.

Headlands appear taller

then break up into

blips and blobs reflected,

surrounded,

top and bottom, by

bright, light sky.

Antonio Dias, 10.06.10

An excerpt from the poem, Loom.
