And when I drove to the seafront
to find myself
in the comforting silence
of waves rolling to the shore
the ocean
screamed your name.

“Fishing boats gather at dawn in the old port in Mogadishu, the Somali capital, in front of destroyed Aruba Hotel. Somali fishermen-turned-pirates have made the waters off the Horn of Africa one of the most treacherous places in the world for international shipping vessels.” Photo: Nichole Sobecki, from this article on Somalia and climate change.

Even if we’re devastated
and our shoulders heavy-weighted,
even if we’re on the ground
and all hope seems to be drowned,
although the sun is already down
in this unenlightened town;
stars are illuminating our paths
and we’ll drive to the seafront
for moonlight baths,
knowing that the sun rising again
is what we’ll see
and so will we.

anonymous asked:

What would a Hufflepuff road trip be like?

  • The best smores 
  • Making new friends everywhere 
  • Building sandcastles 
  • Taking beautiful candid photos of your friends
  • The only thing that shines brighter than the sun is your disposition
  • Enjoying the simple things like the sun on your skin, stopping to smell the flowers, and sand between your toes
  • Curling up under a blanket in the backseat 
  • Making sure your friends wear sunscreen and drink enough water
  • Carefully pressing flowers into a book
  • Walking along the seafront, holding hands 
  • Collecting seashells
  • Waking up early to enjoy the sunrise with your closest friends
