The Eucalyptus Tricked Us

Surf Shack – out back – Santa Cruz 10.6.2015

The eucalyptus tricked us
We needed to be tricked
Helping to reclaim the brain
Helping to heal the pain

The butterflies fooled us
We needed to be fooled
Helping to let us forget
Helping to use beauty to distract

The birds pranked us
We needed to be pranked
Helping us to laugh
Helping us to laugh

The beach sunset reminded us
Of all the good we had forgotten
Helping with sand between the toes
Helping with waves repeating waves

Helping us remember
Today is beautiful
Helping us remember
Tomorrow shows promise

Helping us move forward
One moment to the next
