Alone in Thought



Tanning skin as my mind ponders,
while the sun shines and the clouds are weak.
Travel by way of thought, farther than yonder,
now in the shade of a large teak.
Burnt skin and tempered psyche,
hidden from its gaze, as more westerly grew the sun's rays.
Such was the length of my journey.
