Returning

On returning home to NYC from a Hawaiian vacation – a poem

No comments

Returning (home to NYC from Hawaiian vacation in Feb 2020)

Sweet, warm wind blows
across hard, black glass.
Lava rock provides little,
yet massively lush green pervades.

Pristine air,
blue water;
a lens.

From an island paradise –
I return.

Cold. Wet. Gray.
Concrete lies waiting

to embrace
my
refocused
soul.
