Poem: Sun, Sea, Sand, Soul.

Durban, South Africa, Marine ParadeSun, Sea, Sand, Soul
I lose myself, staring at
The red eye in the sky.

I lose myself, listening to
The song of surf on sand.

The Indian Ocean mere inches from my feet:

Salty sea spray,
Playing an ageless tune.
Sealing men’s souls within
The fine grains of sand.
