Time Is Running

dear fogo Island

pale greys
blanket the sky
worn through patches
exposes the deep blue
of what could be

I see you
across the water
faded, alone
no one living in your home
your eyes show me sadness
no sparkle or reflection in your glass
I wish I could walk through your front door
bringing with me many days of more
washing you with love
exposing colours that once was
I see you

almost
I can reach across and touch you
there is tall grass
deep waters
wall of rocks
to climb
can you wait for me
will you survive another storm
wishing I could comfort you
to give you hope
to share with you my dreams
your chairs would be painted
the colours of the evening skies
your eyes would be bigger and brighter

feeling
a knife tearing through my skin
reaching my heart
looking at you so far across the bay

    1. Thank you so much Steve! This means a lot coming from you, someone who’s work I truly admire and look up to. Dear Diary is a separate blog I wrote while on Fogo Island last october. I was there for a month and it filled me with such joy.
