Tomorrow, we will be leaving this magical place.  
Two weeks never seems long enough to take in the beauty and magic of this island.

With its shelter for mating birds

and those who may have not found a mate

with children who dance 
in its gentle waves

and all the other creatures 
who come to play at the edge of the sea

I join them
saluting the end of another day
as the sun melts into the sea

my presence is inconsequential
and yet
I am most alive
in these quiet moments
of freedom.
