Billy Joel sang a song – Zanzibar
I heard its call
Then time took its steady toll,
Zanzibar slid slowly into the endless sands of time
Then one day, unexpectedly, I heard the call again
I traveled back to Zanzibar, but only in my mind
There it was vivid and alive
And then again it slowly slipped away
And just like before it re-emerged, in Tofino

Its cords threaded memories through time Zanzibar was alive
Past, present and future aligned
Dreams and time moments flicker on and merge with mists
And memories cast upon dream catchers
Held to the winter wind
They shimmer and smile
Then slip away again
But the thread, while unseen, like a spider’s web remains
to draw me back, perhaps, one day?
