Starry-eyed shores

a starry-eyed child

“You were born a child of light’s wonderful secret— you return to the beauty you have always been.”
― AberjhaniVisions of a Skylark Dressed in Black

The air feels like remembrance,
on shimmering sands
of recall.
Inhaling childhood visions,
my senses are enthralled.

Beneath the azure firmament
where squealing gannets glide,
a profusion of pungent seaweed
drifts in
with the tide.

I’m transported
back in time,
to a stop-over in my dreams,
as I gaze at taupe
sand-dunes,
gently moving in the breeze…

In a caravan of promise, where time stands still,
beyond waves that echo,
eagerly getting my fill, of the warm salty ocean,
and the balmy sea air,
surging through the breakers,
bliss beyond compare.

The taste of vanilla ice cream,
swirling on my tongue,
savoring sweet confections,
when I was very young!

And the blazing sun sparkled,
touching my pasty skin,
I soaked up the radiance,
of belonging to my kin.

At night
the swells rumbled,
as if the ocean was at our door
and the distant cosmos sparkled
on starry-eyed shores.

the remembrance is alive,
in an illustrated feeling,
holiday narrations,
and the innocence of being!
