Where I long to be

Autumn sun

silvered skies

Gentle wind

empty beach

Timeless chaotic

Scottish sea

Searching for

shells amongst

Pebbles, smooth

marbled caramel

sipping peppermint

tea with

an infinity

of stories

to tell

A poem written about my first love and best friend, Agata. She is a person who has always been there for me through the fun and happy times, but also during the dark horrible times. This poem and drawing, is me celebrating our friendship.

Olu is 23-year old British Nigerian woman. As a child, she struggled with her speech and found comfort through drawing and writing poetry.
