A Quiet

As the darkness falls

and the sea breeze embraces the evergreen trees

the horizon gives birth to the moon

Her pale reflection shines on the water

My thoughts are of Bali

in my mind I can see

green rice-terraces the bloom of hibiscus

and graceful palms

Peaceful panoramas and foliage lush

embroidered with orchids and giant butterflies

The perfume of frangipani

on the wind comes to me

from Sabang to Merauke

my travels have been

A solitary figure at dusk

watching the diminishing tide recede

the wet sand illuminated

lost in this realm of reflections
