Deep 
footprints 

Sink
into
soft
sand. 

My existence.. 
lies 
there. 

Before my eyes. 

Blink. 
Shut. 
Blink. Open.

Yes,
I was there. 

Eyes 
shift slowly 
upwards 

to an infinite blue. 

Everywhere

blue. 


Looking backwards

into an 

infinite 

time. 
 

Blue
blazes 
back. 

So intensely 
it 
hurts. 

Swsssh ... 
swsssh .... 

Cool water 
cascades 
across 
my
feet. 

Blink. 
Shut. (Tight shut). 
Blink. Open. 

I was there. I know
I was.


Briefly.
