AN ISLAND BEACH
AN ISLAND BEACH



I want to get out of this rut,
Where man is a machine.
I spend all time with computer,
The cell and limousine.

Too far from nature, I live in
A jungle of concrete.
My house is air-conditioned,
I don’t know cold or heat.

I wish I could get out and go
To a white mountain top,
Where in the silent vastness, time
Does virtually stop.

I wish one day I find myself
In a hot air balloon,
Drifting along with air currents
To go nowhere, nor soon.

Else, I wish on an island beach,
I find myself one day,
Where worries are washed out to sea,
Not to come back, I stay.
