Let’s have a catch up.
We’ll sip tea and eat scones with jam
while skipping along the borderline
of countries lost under the seas
and between the stars.
We’ll pick flowers, too.
Nightshade to match your swirling dress,
Foxglove to use as drinking cups –
best not keep it for soup.
We can chart out our own paths
using chalk and chlorophyll
and a compass of needle and cork.
We’ll sing songs heard in seashells
and whisper spells into bottles
to float amongst the sea foam.
