A World Away--By Marc Livano--United States

A World Away

It’s so beautiful here,
welcoming, secluded, discreet,
sitting together on a boat,
anchored by the beach.

Around us, sea spray,
crystal skies, pretty shells,
brackish water, hypnotic waves,
and gulls splash about.

No other thoughts,
than I am here
with my wife of 40 years
together in paradise.

Marc Livanos’ poems have appeared in Straylight Magazine, Poet’s Espresso Review, Stray Branch Magazine, Old Red Kimono, Ship of Fools, Song of the San Joaquin Quarterly and others. His chapbooks “Panhandle Poet - Solitude” and “Panhandle Poet - Second Helpings” are available online at
