Today’s guest poet – me!


She runs.

The sand spins beneath her feet
Kicked up by her heels
Impressed by her soles
Chasing air

She drifts.

Her hair spreads across the water
Reminiscent of seaweed and mermaids
Her eyes close to the heat of blue
Her body basks, basks

She wanders.

Slow and languid, lingering
In space and time

She flies.

Unencumbered by rain
Lightened by wind
Navigating by past missteps
And sightless wisdom

She waltzes.

Dips and turns beneath
The shooting stars
Accompanied by silent songs
In harmony with her steps

She sleeps.

Her breathing matches
The rhythm of the waves
As they settle on the shore
Infinitely calm

She dreams.
