Lost by Martin Hawkes



Lost


In the sun

on wind dried skin

in the iridescent green

of hopeful spring messages

in the potent blooming

of all that is new

still I long

for what

was





Martin Hawkes was born in Edinburgh and worked for several years as a sound engineer in London before graduating with an English literature degree.
