Like sugar

Life so very sweet
I walk the white sand beach
White sugar grains so delicate
And fine beneath my feet
Like a queen visiting the shores
Of some foreign land
Where sand meets water
Meets sun
Meeting sky
And they stand and watch
My knights at attention
Feathers in place
Eyes shining and bright
And they bow before flight
Swooping their tricks in the air
And feathers move about
In shallow waters
That move against my ankles
Warm and wet.
I walk here under a morning sun
That feels cool with the breeze
And my shirt of sky colors
Blows about my frame
Forward and back
Like ocean robes
I look into the distance and see
Blue shades
Hues of memory
Patterns of waves
King Neptune calling
His mermaid home
To the depths of the mind
Treasures locked in the chest
The heart beat
A drumming of life
To the waters rhythm
Of my days
Of reclaiming myself
And a simple peace.

Thoughts on a morning walk in Siesta Key where the sand is so very fine, like sugar ground glistening and warm in an island sun.

The Law of the Sun and Stars

Energy vibrates the sky
the humid air
the silent night
Darkness comes quickly
ocean tides moving in and out
I close my eyes to the movement
as I raise my hands to catch
the mist like stars
into me.
Looking into the atmosphere
air that hangs like spanish moss
and leaves take form
we see the same
yet not quite until trading places
we agree and smile
and I think we see that which we love
ghost apparition visiting
like a long-lost friend
watching over
Out of time and space
I turn my thoughts to better things
not fears
not sadness
and looking then down to the sea
the pillars lined and long
millions of fish pool in circles and shapes
and the fisherman says something is driving them in
not something you usually see
and I am blessed for below my feet
tiny silver sails swim in and out
like eternity moving
silently under
I watch in wonder
this moment
of now.
