Lough Glenicmurrin

in me

I close my eyes now, and open them two years ago. The sun is on my face. There are only two colours in the world, green and blue.

Water laps, insects buzz, and the wind sighs soft in my ear. The only things I see are the lake, the mountains, and my friends.

Eadaoin’s by my side, quiet; Aafke’s at the end of the stone pier across from us.

We’re all happy. Today is a good day.

And I’m here, now in this hush.

There’s no past, no future. There isn’t a last week or tomorrow, just this perfect eternal present.

We go back to the car and drive on.
