The waves sang their usual lullaby waving at an intermittent pace, giving grains of sand an opportunity to travel to new spaces with every applaud. The freezing water flowed past our ankles shocking us awake like salty espresso shots, and in coming back alive we discovered the importance of the present.
So the horizon of our cocktails raced to the soft glassy bottom
Where the answers have been known to reside, cosy like nappies on baby’s bottoms
Watching the milky way dash across the vastness above us
Like a stellar bolt of lightning suspended on strings from heavenly ceilings
Have you ever felt an emotion so intensely good that you didn’t want to savour it, take it all in at once because it made you feel like now is all that matters? Now is all we know, now is all we have.
