Sea

06 Jul

Branches with silver leaves

Swaying gently in the breeze
Behind it a blue morning sky, 
Announcing the day to come.
The smell of the sea stings a little, 
The sounds of waves crashing in the distance
Remind you of where you are.

And you hear something new,
A guitar, not far,
Voices singing with that morning dissonance,
Inviting heads to turn,
People to come out of tents,
Other morning voices to join.

For a moment,
Despite how
Tired,
Sunburned,
Mosquito-bitten,
Or dirty
You might feel,
It feels like you’ve found a patch of heaven on earth
In this moment everything is fine.
You start humming along to the song,
Slowly getting up from the place you slept,
And you feel like you’ve been here all your life.
You know these strangers by name,
Somehow in the night they became family,
Uncomplicated and open,
And you’re finally home.

    I seem to have lost my old wordpress account, but I still have your feed saved. Seeing this was a welcome surprise. Glad to see you writing again; you are amazing at it and I was afraid you would never come back.

      Thank you! I came back to send the link to a new friend and realised the last posts were dark and I wrote them years ago, it seemed a shame to leave it like that.
      What was your old WordPress account?
