Poetic Photographer

at dawn

When sleep evades me
a design
for a new dress is made
carefully sewn
ready for
when I leave home.

I start my
little white car
always a rush
the sun
I barely feel
as I drift
towards the sea

From a water of blueness
I feel the crystal white sand
the heat of the sun
the powerful waves
crashing down
enticing me
to the dark caves
where I might find
another soul
who calls
this paradise home.

inspired by 
my obsessions
sewing, driving, the beach
