earth note 387

rolling waves on the gulf of thailand
pitching the travelers
to grab on to the rails
the ferry plows ahead doggedly
two and a half hours
to the port of na thon
on the island of koh samui

i do my best to ignore the commotion
rolling with my bicycle wheels
down the ramp
on to the island ring road
and then away from the town center

the sun and water are dominant
giving the coconut trees
the best chance to stand out
to ignore the buzz
of the tuk-tuk traffic

in a dream
the world can be clear
though fleeting
freedom
sometimes lives
in the smallest
of spaces
