Easter Sunday, 2017

there’s haze
on the islands
beyond my reach
but the sun high
in the sky
warms the world
my third cup
of coffee
laced with Baileys
warms me
and here
in a country
voting on its future
today
I watch the gulls
sail by
and think of loved ones
far away
in miles in time
while waiting
for my phoenix
to rise
