Leaving Rottnest Island

Written on a way from Rottnest Island, Western Australia

. . .

So long, Rottnest,
Your clear beaches
And pure beauty left behind.
Your silver sand,
Protruding rocks,
Blue sky.

My heart is longing to stay,
I feel that I belong
To one of private beaches
Forever strolling
On shifting sand through crystal waters…

So warm, so free,
Attempting to capture beauty,
Elusive, clean and true.
For thousand of years you stood,
And now I am here
And belong, dissolved in salty air.

My hair
turning into seaweed,
I feel my growing membranes
Or may be tail.

I’ll stroll into your waters
Further, further I walk
The water now is above me, sun shining through above my head.
I dive with dolphins
And they lead me
to treasure chest,

I take it to the shore
And open.
And there
I find my happiness

. . .
