At the end of the earth, but an ocean ahead
Cilffs jutting forth up from crashing waves
Due west was my home, but now I’m here instead
Another land, another time, another place.
A child runs towards his mother as she sings a beautiful duet in front of an audience. She takes him against her, lifts him up into her loving arms and smiles radiantly, all without missing a single note.
Soft seas splash against pebble shores
Shining sun and piers to walk aboard
Autumn warmth from a seaside breeze
Hands and hearts delight with ease
Positive post-its to bright red walls
Started by a few to remind us all
That there’s many a joyful thing to see
If we’d take but a moment to bask in its beauty
A man off a cycle feeding the birds with no trifles. A flock of grey flutters.
A radiant smile
With shimmering eyes
Looking at me so inquisitively
A light touch
Clear blue sky and sunshine on a crisp autumn morning that makes the hint of frost that’s settled overnight shimmer like little diamonds, and warms the face with its effortless radiance.
