A Daydream

by Kate Pope

I am standing here overlooking the sea
Yet I am looking at something else
My hands hold tightly to the railing
Yet I am grasped tightly to something else
The ocean waves crash, roaring in my ears
Yet I am listening to something else
I can see the sun setting on the horizon
Yet I am focusing on something else
The ocean breeze leaves salt in my mouth
Yet I am tasting something else
