The Lady On the Beach

I slowly enter consciousness, as my eyes flutter open, I first see the sun sitting
comfortably in the bright blue sky.

So happy to see me again, as the rays softly touch my skin I feel as though I am
being reunited with an old friend.

I do not need to look at my surroundings to know I am lying on sand; I can feel each
granule tickling the back of my neck.

I sit up, I do not know this place and yet I feel I have been here before. And I know I
am looking for something.

And there she is.

Her dress flows in the breeze just as her sun hat does, from behind she’s like a daisy
swaying in the wind.

Her shoes sit on the sand while she stands further out, barefoot in the shallow tide,
she smiles at the sun, it smiles back.

Instinctively I know who this lady is, she is the one who knows.

Despite the fact she smiles, up close I realise there is a single tear rolling down her

“Am I dead?”

“In a sense.”

“What’s the point of it all?”

As the sun sets, the sky goes from a bright blue to a deep orange, a cosmic blend of
infinite colours.
“Seek it out, gaze upon it..”
