Selene Campion

I'm Sorry

I'm sorry I watched the sunset.
You said it was too late for a child but it was
So serene upon the horizon.
Yellow tinged with pink,
It reminded me so much
Of a grapefruit.

Distantly reflected into the shimmering ocean
I thought I could hold it;
My outstretched hand grasped at thin air.
