The heat from the sun transported me today,
From my deck outside to somewhere past
the tiniest of stars that might be visible in the evening,
as I listened to the quiet soothing music
of waves curling and exploding and receding along the shore
in some eternal, inexplicable rhythm,
in some remote, exotic place.
The sky became purple,
with glittering golden clouds,
flashing brilliant colors
not known to my small human psyche.
As I fell asleep, content,
knowing that somewhere in the universe,
Now, the summer wind cools my flesh,
And my heart
To a peaceful reality of this time and place.
I smile at the universe who has carefully
given me everything I need,
and the smallest of glimpses into eternity.
