Motion of living

Moving forward
This world a wave pushing me
In and out
Riptide tugging here then there
I float to escape into the horizon
To chart the course
Originally followed.
The sun shines like razors
Flashing into eyes
Blinding illumination
Reflected off of life
And into the soul
With clarity.
I reach out for land
Hands and knees pulling myself towards higher ground
Need to see the whole of it all
Not just one grain of sand
Under my nail.
The perfect shell tumbles along
Caught in the froth of a wave,
Gifts from the sea rolling
Come, see about me it calls
As legs move it along just out of reach.
I follow along the tiny prints digging into earth
Leaving zigzag marks as it skitters along,
It leads me to the grass
And I climb the dune to battered fences
And there before me a hundred perfect shells,
Shades of white and pink and lilac
Dainty specimens unique.
I reach down and pick one of the largest pieces,
Holding it up I hear the sounds
Of waves and the universe echoing to my soul,
This is life,
Journeys leading you
Moving you
Relax and follow
Or float and be carried out,
Or just to simply stop and listen
To the heartbeat within.
I hold my head up high
With eyes closed to the blinding sun,
I listen and breathe,
The beat of the waves on this earth,
The beat of the rhythm of my heart,
The music and motion
Of my life.
