My Window on the World

20120509-231026.jpg

The view from my window
a misted valley doused in cherry
where once a mighty ocean
flowed with trade to dock
Now barren bar for lichen
in search of sea salt and iodine
Violet vapours to soothe
a tonic for the ills of a past
Sent to heal my tired eyes
as I wake to look out
of my window on the world
