The Island of Axis Mundi
It is there just beyond the ocean waves,
An island of refuge from the sea.
An oasis of sun light stardust,
A clumping of lush green.
Only a few sailors landed on this ocean oasis,
The Axis Mundi where no map can lead.
A place between heaven and earth,
Somewhere far in the sea but just beyond the ocean crest.
A point to see the world from new light,
Upon the branches, trunks and roots that tie it together.
