Sea Comfort

Silent observer on my travels 
People engaged and rejoicing 
Elevated energy of delight enveloping
I feel the gentle sea breeze 
Refreshing from the hot summer sun
The sound of seagull familiar
No cars here like home, but same
The smell of the ocean acute
Reminds me of youth
Growing up on Staten Island
Mere blocks from the shore
You never forget the smells of your past 
Nostalgia, life’s best medicine
