Another day we went to the sea

Seagulls emerging from the clouds

Home bound birds and memories

Inside my heart lost love letters

Sand dunes and seashells

Night washed out in silence

Half-forgotten dreams

Don’t want to wake up

Time a silent stalker

In an empty space on the sea waves

Seashells, mundane thoughts and imaginations

Inside me your existence

Sand dunes, quick sand and seashells

Parched lips

Fire in our hearts…

And we part…
