Road to

A path spilling out the meadow to meet the clouds at a horizon blurred like a mirage.

The noontime blaze of a sun warming all those who do not warm themselves.

Letters pile up in a virtual mailbox, unread. Text never find its way to a phone, turned off.

Today I walk in the woods. 10AM to whenever: wander.

There are no goalposts; the land on the other side of the hill is unknown.

Twilight seagull cries. The ocean beckons with foam-crested fingers. Come with me and you too, will become sand. Break into small things. Small things last forever, because they do not try to be.
