Distant Waves

I left a part of myself in those woods by the sea

probably half-decayed by now

shaded by evergreens that breathe the salt air

and drink the rains mixing with the brackish water

we lay in the long grass

Sheltered from the wind and melting into the soil

just a taste of what’s to come

silence but for the sound of distant waves

our breath

and the soft laughter of those nearby

who we cannot see

Strange memories of peace.
