Waves and Turning Seas......

Source

I picture this often.............just sitting
so near the turning sea that
all else disappears
everything
memories and old
dreams
desires
destinations
disappointments
duties
All of it
right down to the
thoughts themselves
The only thing left to
roll through sliding softly against my
senses
The surf the seas
the sounds
Until at once I am
cleansed from within
like so many shells that
line these shores
Like the polished stones that
roll in upon the other stones
at high tide
Like the harbor seal that
cares not once of
going ashore
Like the sound of the sea
itself .....until I can listen
no more
no more........

Nothing like the sound of the sea. A lovely read to close out a long day.

This sounds lovely. I so recall hearing that before we had televsion to watch people use to sit and relish the sunset. I bet this also applied to the ocean. Really sounds pleasant!

I did go, this past Saturday, to the lovely Atlantic beach. The ocean does have that power to invade all your senses and cleanse the mind! Just wish you could have been there with us to enjoy. Love and hugs!
