I Close My Eyes
I close my eyes and hear the wind whooshing through the trees. It reminds me of the times I could listen to the seas.
It takes me on a journey to far off distant shores. To a time when we were not engaged in virulent virus wars.
I can almost feel the golden sand snuggling between my toes. The cheery chatter of fellow travellers hugging me so close.
I close my eyes and drink another cup of tea. Imagining it’s a margarita sipped in life once free.
I close my eyes and feel the sun caressing my face. Imagining this feeling felt in a different place.
I close my eyes and dream that this will be over soon. So I can watch in wondrous places, the sun the stars the moon.
