COAST TO COAST ...

COAST TO COAST: new year's poem 
© Farouk Asvat 

Little birds fly in silhouette
Dirty oranges splash across the evening sky
Diamonds glitter on distant black hills
As the grey sea leisurely splashes
Against the rocks at my feet
Here at Club Mykonos
In the Cape of Good Hope

     It is time

          My thoughts sail
          In a little fishermen's boat
          Slowly disappearing over the horizon
          Across the oceans
          To a pier in San Francisco Bay
          Where a saddened smile greets me
          Every morning on a futon
          Linking the trauma of the past
          With the happiness of a love
          That is so far away
