Beach

It’s sunset
Am on the beach barefoot
The sky’s rich, brilliant and varied
Like you

The water’s blue, cresting
It dips and rushes towards me
Soothing my burning being

I feel like resting
But I can’t
What can I do but pant?

I look at the sand
It’s pure, unsoiled as ever
Beneath me I feel its ebbing warmth

Your profile hovers around
In me loneliness abounds

Unto me you have been a lavender
Without you am going under

How can I hold onto these feelings?
How can I share them with you?
How can I quantify my hankering?

I dip into the ocean
It receives me, wholly
Ngetich Kiptoo
