Yesterday was hot,
in the evening the sunset
was the most spectacular
I have ever seen around here
and this morning the dawn was beautiful.
They say that today is going to be even hotter.
Inside my breathing is slow and easy
and the ocean is calm.
The breeze doesn’t stop at my face,
it moves through me and on to a shoreline far away.
I am in a London garden, watching gulls fly overhead
but my soul, my soul is lost at sea, waiting for night to fall
so it can navigate by the stars.
