Simple Blessings

Simple Blessings

sunlight played across my skin

in lacy layers

of warmth & light…

… a strange peacefulness

fell in hushed & muffled tones…

traffic midway from there to where

muted by wind whispers

through coconut fronds…

… the chatter of parrots

a tumultuous symphony…

no one stirred

or walked the scuffed paths –

- a simple blessing

caught as I was

in animations

of communal living…

a surreal unreality

infused the afternoon

as if all signs

of human interaction

had frozen in time…

…. granting me a moment

that was purely mine….
