Sea of Smiles

Updated: Jan 30

the sun is at its zenith blazing down from an unsullied sky baking the black sand beneath my feet so hot it burns

a strong onshore wind is chasing luminous white horses across the surface of a deep indigo sea leaving their salty touch on my skin as it passes

a melody gamelans and drums gongs and cymbals laughter and chatter ripples around me and the song of an ice cream seller is making my mouth water

I turn my gaze towards the heavens watching the kites write their poetry in the sky as they float high above our sea of sea of smiles
