barefoot on a winter afternoon

tangled, messy, long hair
tangerine sunshine, a song in the air
watching you from afar, eyes behind glares
rising dust storm, run-away heart beat
you, me and memories of us here


ode to a sunset wrapped in a desert sarong


thank you for all the laughter and a million memories strong
nothing recedes without leaving behind…
an echo, a silhouette, an imagined warmth
with you, I’ve discovered time and tide come back for second chances
may they find me just a little wiser and a little happier
and a traveller for many a miles long
and should you call, I will play along
this time, for the love and the echoes of the song.
