Somewhere Far Away - Poem by Guillermo Veloso

Somewhere an ocean spreads on a sleeping beach
Somewhere a wave falls red with krill
Somewhere a blue whale leaps in scaffold breach
Somewhere a tern paints an arctic sky

Somewhere a man faces his death and asks why
Somewhere a pie cools just baked on a wooden sill
