Other Side of the World (revised)

Photograph by Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

There you are as you are
on the other side of the world
adventure and intrigue

Doing what you do day to day
and night after night while
I am at home tucked in tight

Here I am and here I stay
on my side of the world
much too far away

Pursuing my dreams
reading and writing
and blogging with friends

Wondering if you think of me
on the wind when the moon’s emerged
and a breeze blows in off the ocean

I think of you – eyes to the stars
watching Venus and Mars
chase old Sol back into the sea

I think of you sailing away
as the man in the moon
comes out to play

I think of you – always


    1. Thank you Hammad – I’m honored! 🙏

    Well, I do wonder about some fellow bloggers, while I’m looking at the sky. And also about those people whom I haven’t seen in ages.
