Wrapped in winter grey and shivering in the dark
I close my eyes and fall into a summer sunset
at the end of a seaside day filled
with the warmth of a heart and
the beauty of a soul.
I wash winter from my bones and
breath deeply of the salted air,
fresh as a cotton ball,
and fill my heart with the music of the gulls
before tumbling deeper in my dreams
colored by marmalade skies and the peace
that only the ocean can bring.
