Quiet surrender

I feel the earth move below me
The tides in and out
Awake or asleep
If terror harkens upon my mind
I open my eyes
Turning and walking away
As nothing here can cause pain
And I change direction
Un distracted
Moving forward to light
Leaving darkness in my wake.
In dreams I live in atmosphere
Like diamonds sparkling
Colors flowing through
Reaching out to touch each one
Bringing it in
To be a part of my whole.
In sleep there lays magic
On sandy beaches with whispering palms
And the drums beat fills the air
Native song moving
Mother Earth to sing her tune.
Thought of happiness replaces
Dark shadows of fear,
Worried memory relaxed to good
And I walk below the sun
Bronzed skin warm by the gentle caress
Of this light from within.
Alive in each moment
In silence I hear the wind
And that is all
And that is everything.

Sunset bliss

Gliding across water
Smooth flow of waves
Tight sail filled
The fins move effortlessly
Three arced dolphins
And for a moment
I am with them
Moving in tune
With the wave.
Sun falls gently down
Reflection of orange
My eyes shaded to the magnificent light
Into the water she slips
And then gone.
Wind dies and sail limp
We sit in silence
The water splashing against the hull
Rocking motion lulls the mind
Into a sense of pure emptiness
The bliss of being here
Of reaching out to wave goodbye
To the setting sun
As we turn and move towards land
As we head home
Moving softly through
The waves
To the jetty beyond.
