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.
