Heard trumpets from afar this morning,
closed my eyes to embrace a memory
of warm winds and white sand.
The smell of salt water and Caribbean cuisine laid still in my mind,
for a brief second.
Laughter and music played insync as sail boats and fishing nets caressed the teal and blue of the sea.
by the thunder of train tracks, the tide pulled back quickly from under the soles of my feet.
We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.
