myself sitting on a bench, ocean in front of me, flower gardens behind me, sunlight streaming all around through the warm air visited by a cooling breeze.
A notebook, a pen, a reading book, and my ipod scattered at my feet, for I am looking straight ahead.
Just being in this place, in this space, calm,
and then collecting myself for whatever journey lies ahead.
True the picture should be much bigger, and there should be flowers all around the hillside, peony, poppy, wiseria, rose....
but then again from where I am, to such a scene, there is much distance, and I must work at making the picture larger and more real if I hope to try and attempt squeezing myself into it.
So perhaps it is right that it is small,
I must bring to it,
