I was looking through some
old photographs when I came across
the most perfect picture I have ever taken,
if the truth be known it probably took me,
as I looked at it the memories swam back
like a great tanker emerging from the sea mist,
the picture was of a sunset reflected on a wet beach,
deep blues, orange and gold, dark sand and black kelp,
captured on holiday during what was, without a doubt,
the most dreadful and painful period of my life
but as I looked down at it I felt no pain, no regret,
I saw only beauty and all I felt was gratitude.
