I live in two worlds

separated by vast waters

~ half a lifetime in each ~

my heart shared




Here on an island

wild and rugged

where I walk the beach

daily and traverse

forests to reach



There on an island

with my daughter

~ a windswept beach

and a bus ride home

to Zoom with my son

her brother


Our orbits

sometimes align

but mostly I am resigned

to drift happily between

two worlds

oceans apart
