Lights Out To Sea

Lauren Phillips-Freeman

--

I never would have thought there would be this many,
a whole horizon sprinkled with them,
diamonds and rubies strewn across the invisible line
where the blackness of the sea meets the blackness of the sky,
the wind turbines putting on a light show just for us,
pinpricks calling across the expanse,
each one the dot of a question mark:
What’s out there?
The headland glows orange and distant to our left,
it too seems to be calling:
You know you want to know…
