A river


towards the sea.

A gentle breeze rustles the trees.

Seagulls cry out


as swans glide

along the water.

Nature in all its splendour

but no sun to brighten the day

grey skies never last


everything changes.

The sky

you and I.

It is still a privilege to

be alive today

while others fight to survive.
