winter afternoon beach in cornwall sun reflection

Return [Creative]

With reluctance I wash the sea air

From my face, wipe the salt

Away, scrape the sand from my shoes

And turn my back to the coast

And the wind whipping through my hair.


I look at pictures of another place,

Shake clothes out that smell of sea

And tame my hair back to normal.

I step off the train, bedraggled

Wondering if I was ever really there.
