Gone the Day

DSC03991 (10)

Today washed away

like sand beneath my feet

when waves roll out to sea.

I’m lead by breezes

toward the midnight hour

where the silence of night

allows me to dream;

then dreams like a river flow…

a river that seeks the sea…

a sea that returns me to shore…

where the day washes away

like sand beneath my feet.

Time drifts on.

  1. The poem captures not just the reality of time passing but it’s looping, repetitive meander as it tirelessly teases us forwards. The photo is spectacular. No wonder Kiwis are so proud of their landscape ….
