Holes in the sand

Coming here will be for you
Like a walk on a winter beach
A light breeze will bring you
The pleasant smell of our sea

You’ll take off your shoes
To feel the softness of the ground
You will find it nicely cool
You’ll skim the water’s edge and smile

Looking around you will see
Places you will recognise
Lightly but inexorably hidden
By the haze of an incongruous time

Exploring this place will feel
Like digging holes in the sand
Unstable ephemeral pathways
Towards memories of another life

A sudden wave of reality
Will hide all the images away
And there will be no trace left
Of your footsteps on my seaside.
