How do I know?

How do I know...

the feel of the waves on the sand,

without having held each grain in my hand?


How do I know…

the rolling rumble of thunder,

without having experienced all nature’s wonder?


How do I know…

the taste of salt in sea spray,

without having travelled each and every water way?


How do I know…

the colours of the night,

without the assistant vision of brilliant starlight?


How do I know…

the smell of coming rain,

without having known the dust on the plain?


How do I know?

My experience of senses referred to afore,

simply mean, I’ve been here before.
