St Ives

Cobbled streets ingrained with sand.

Shops remembered. Resurrected from memories.

Every street corner beginning with ‘do you remember when”?

Because we do.

We measure out our lives in recollections,

with this as our setting.

Tides roll in, lives move on.

Surf retreats, we honour those past.

Yet cherish the living. Every year, we bask in

the glow of our loved ones in St Ia’s light.

Relishing in the beauty of the now.

  1. Lovely antidote to Monday morning, drizzly, dark blues in my house.
