Fame is a Fading Whisper

from her seaside ivory tower
empty now of gaiety
to the rocky shore’s edge
deep into the dark blue sea

a foreboding call she answered
seeking eternal quietude
until all that remained
a sheet that wrapped her naked body

an eternal accolade
for a star’s final performance
lifted by trade winds
floating to the heavens
fame is a fading whisper
