LETTERS IN A BOTTLE

(to the poet)

 

On the isle 

sitting by I

numbering each grain of sand

 

across the sea my muse

wrinkled smiling bemused

forgotten youth 

 

Have you ever seen anything more beautiful?

gosh…

 

snap! I didn’t know I couldn’t!

There's magic in translating a body of work from one language to another.
