Embrace

By Dom Hewitt



from a certain shore,

you did not look so distant,

and I fell giddy at

the thought of boats.


it was easy to forget

that beneath the sightline

the world is measured

in fathoms.


DOMINIC HEWITT is a librarian and poet based in Oxford. He grew up in a big family in a small village in the west of England.
