I press my feet in white wet sands,
Feeling the slight pull of ocean tides
Where a thousand grains and piece swirl
Cascading me in its rhythmic lullaby.
At the waters edge the mermaids call
Their siren song of foam and destiny
Deeper I move towards setting sun
And horizons beyond that never end.
I come to seek the bits and treasure
Washed ashore as the rollers move out
I stoop to pluck from a million gems
The perfect piece that touches my heart.
My soul finds peace on cloudy days
Or wind swept sun that shines above
It is all here that I immerse myself within
Where my soul splashed by diamond drops
Settles comfortably and at peace,
To be weightless on water
To be on the edge of this eternity.
Thoughts on a late morning stroll on the beach plucking sharks teeth from their nestled homes in shell piles, feeling the cool water on my toes and the salt fresh air welcoming me home.
