When clouds have slid into
Indistinguishable strands of silk as a veil
On the smile of the sunset,
You will take a deep breath
Air will fill your nose, smell sweet,
Settle into your lungs with a sigh.
Feel alive then.
The sand is between your toes and there is
A gentle rockabye song
Playing over your mind; one wave, two wave.
Crash softly, pull back out to the expanse of ocean,
You will breathe out
Knowing one day this too shall pass. This too shall
Belong simply to your children.
