In my dreams I am always back there
On the border between land and sea
Ahead, the tide.
Behind – what? Home?
No, it was never home
Home is where I wake
But in my sleep, I return
Whatever the year or season
Back to the beach
Where endless scenes play out
And the tide is always coming in.

Written in the Dream poetry workshops organised by Together! 2012 CIC for Newham Carnival 2016.
