Aprils come and Aprils go

(Sunsets by Francisco Bravo Cabrera, All Rights Reserved)

I have challenged ocean waves,

and the currents of the seas,

without steering,

without sails,

without a captain.

Diving deep below the ground,

like a fish upon the sand,

it’s not how, it’s when I can,

through a scream that knows no sound,

like the wind it turns around

and comes my way…

I have challenged the north wind,

I have sailed around the cape,

is it good hope? Is it bad?

It does not matter.

Someone stole my springtime hope,

that I kept deep in my heart,

Aprils come and Aprils go,

and time has taken us far apart,

and the last train will depart within the hour,

And I am so far from the station,

so I’ll stay in shallow water,

far from the depths of your bays,

I know I can challenge high tide

but I don’t know if today,

I will chance upon another

sunlit morning,

so I’ll stay.

        Ah Pamukkale, Cotton Castle. I haven’t been there, but have seen pics, it’s a famous place

      • Francisco Bravo Cabrera · 29 Days Ago

        Yes, it is a very nice and unusual place where you climb a mountain that looks like snow but from where warm water flows…travertines, I think they called those little waterfalls…

      Thank you, Samuel

    Absolutely gorgeous.

    I know I can challenge high tide
    but I don’t know if today,
    I will chance upon another
    sunlit morning,
    so I’ll stay.

    Wow.
