Just a sip

We float amongst the beautiful things
watching the ripples move out from our lives
absorbed in the depths
of another’s soul of words,
we long for that beauty
to call our own.
We linger in our reflections,
distortion of thought marring our view
as waves crash over in the dark
we lose sight of the moon for but a moment
then remember with the light
of a distant star
we are who we are.
Standing in the shallows
we dig our toes down in the unseen,
lingering on edges and softness
we free ourselves from the silt
shaking it off
we cleanse our images in the cool water,
we sip just a bit
to remember the taste
of our life blood
coursing through unencumbered,
we dye the sky
with our worth.
Knowing as we depart
still finding solid ground,
we were always enough.
For we are what lies within,
unseen yet felt
activated vibration and energy
and the will of amazing strength,
forged of the universe we rise
and stand tall.
