The World Is A Beautiful Place


When a half burnt forest sighs-

A half eaten moon trying to be a smiley

Writes a half-light story in a dark sky-

When a half dead ocean cries-

A mother whale leaps up

Letting her child go to ‘full fathom five’*

I tell myself

The world must be a beautiful place

For it is still alive-

*The Tempest Act I Sc. II
