How it would feel
I look across the calm sea and wonder where you are,
Hopeful that your face’s reflection will show up soon to
Validate the thoughts I have of you.
Do you really exist?
The splash of an oar on the shimmering liquid brings
Me back to the shoreline, where I run my fingers across
Ribs on shells, while wondering how it would feel to
Touch your thin cheek again.
Did I really see you that day?
Your cologne hangs in the air, close to my open mouth that
Carries no sound yet welcomes you always.
If you are thinking of me too, won’t you join me soon?

The photo of the calm sea was taken by me here in Victoria, BC. I hope your day is calm and lovely, with hints of poetic reflections.
