30 days to go
until I’m back living
in the place of soul-moving sunsets
that engulf half the sky.

I was 14
I climbed up on the wooden fence
and got my cousin Andrew to take the photo.

I wanted something to remember
that moment
that sunset
that land I love so true.

When I grew up
I wanted to explore the world
be an artist
fall in love
have a daughter
and return back home.

The next sunset photo of me
will have my love beside me
and my arms around my daughter.

I’m still that wild and dreaming 14 year old at heart
but now my dreams
have come true.
