A walk along the shore,
Crusted in coral and glass,
Morning breaks across the horizon,
And the colours an explosion, a feast for the eyes.
Warm wind sweeping across my body,
Like a soft yellow blanket.
The air smells of salt and sunscreen.
I feel like a little elephant lost on an island,
My mother is nowhere to be found.
But the sun is warm, and the trees are strong,
My mother nature surrounds me.
The sweet taste of soy on my tongue,
And foreign words in my mouth.
I long to stay here forever,
The blooming sea to the South.
Balance and blessings,
Beauty and tears.
These are the things that nobody fears.
By myself now, and for many years,
I sit at the base of a great tree,
Wrapping my trunk around its trunk.
Soaking in the orange, yellow, and purple,
Warm like a fire.
My heart is full, my mind is content,
With all of this desire.
