My Place

 

quietSitting on my place beside the ocean

Watching the ripples of sunlight dance across her waves

The only busy of life, sandpipers and gulls preparing for their day

Salt air pouring deeply in to my lungs

Gifted endless inhale, made for one

Nature whispers, expand and contract in your gentle way

Washing serenity over me with her lapping waves

The scent of cedars that surround me so tall and strong

Collective aged wisdom reminding me of where I belong

Speaking as the sun starts to rise

Quiet your mind, relax your weary eyes

Sit with your spirit and let your heart be

For anything else

I wouldn’t be me

Lead Me To The Ocean

beach

If you ever care to know me

What speaks beneath my eyes

Take me by the hand and lead me to the ocean

Sit with me in the quiet under the starry sky

When the sun starts to rise bringing a new day

Breathe in my love

I exhale to share this way

For the ocean has felt my deepest fears and hopes in her gentle ways

If you ever care to know me

What speaks beneath my eyes

Lead me to the ocean

Holding my hand along the way
