Neverland

This screen,
small, cold and blue,
lets me glimpse another
side of the Earth, so far away
from here.

Those scenes
fill my senses.
I hear exotic birds –
their songs float on the air, calling
to me.

Breathing,
I almost smell
that singular perfume,
the unique scent of the mountains:
Fynbos.

My heart
beats with longing
as I dream I belong
to that sea, earth, air, that spirit;
my bliss.

I watch
the sun set there –
it slips into the sea –
while here, the same sun shines brightly
above.

Two worlds
through one window,
bridging so much distance.
And though I will myself there, I’m here;
apart.
