The Ocean

MMC- Movement

I am not sure why we try so hard
to disregard the inevitable the in flow
the overwhelming rush
the over-our-head suffocation that always comes
day in day out as sure to be
as the tides no one can live in only one direction
no one can feel only bliss (more…)

WPC: Wish

From the moment I knew
my body was growing you a wish
began to propagate within my heart a wish
that I knew I must pass on
to you, in no way could I buy speak make or bake
I couldn’t give to you or feel for you
no way to paint, explain, borrow or grow it
there it was and there were you
I see it finding a home within you I see you
doing what your heart tells you, learning

About all the animals of this planet finding
the highest point to get the best vantage point, I see you
opening your voice to the ocean waves
who gladly call back again and again you are small
but you are mighty wise to find your breath
within the Earth’s expansive skies to trust
your own body and what it feels to sense
that there is something beyond what you see
and most importantly you know that you can
find yourself when you are outside
uninhibited

** This post is part of the Weekly Photo Challenge, this weeks theme is “Wish”. You can find more entries, HERE. May we all find our own way to connect with ourselves when we are outside, uninhibited.

Enjoy

Enjoy the joy spilling from
your lips enjoy the joy tempting your dreams enjoy
the joy singing to your heart enjoy the joy
lighting your spark
enjoy the joy radiating beyond
your outstretched arms enjoy the joy seeping
from your roots into the ground enriching all (more…)

Solstice Gold

The final hour before winter is
official a golden blanket of warmth
tucking in the shadows the wilds still churn
a harmonizing rhythm where the earth and ocean wildly embrace
one another where mist jumps a hundred feet in the air
waves crash again and again (more…)

Hope on the Horizon

There is hope in a view
such as this the warmth of the sun the quiet smooth mist
the in and out of the effortless
tides the waving brush celebrating an arrival
to a point where one can see what is expected
of how far reaching
our efforts are encouraged to keep up
where the skies are inviting and the fresh air is sweetly calling
us to be our best to be myself
to be you oh I could marvel staring at all that is beyond
waiting for us ready calling me close and when I am ready
we will continue on (more…)

WPC: Local

I have lived many places and in some cases I didn’t want it known that I was a local. That is not the case with our most recent move, over two years ago now. From the moment we unpacked I was instantly proud to say I live here. I am mostly asked this question when we are frequenting the beaches, although it happens occasionally in the forests too. (more…)
