Reaching The Shore

Another thunder....

Approaching the eternal.

A poem of the sea.

When the next wave finally reaches the shore,

After crossing the whole, wide, blue sea,

Why does it go back to where it was before?

Just to be. Just to be. Just to be.

Life is a circle, repeating endless cycles. This is short but lovely my friend.

A great question: what starts the circle and cycle of life? Thoughtfully expressed in just a few kind of poetry!! Am sharing!

Question asked and answered, just to be. That may be the answer to all life's questions. People tend to make life too complicated, it is "just to be." Great and voted up!

"Just to be." For the sea, it is sufficient. For man it must be more, and the being is the struggle, as real as the pulse which imitates the rythms of the waves crashing on the shore. Our pulse varies with stress, love, danger, sadness, and crisis. The ocean is massive. The heart which allows us "Just to be" weighs about half a pound empty. Somewhere within us there is "a spark of divinity" which weighs even less and goes with us eternally... just to be.

Love the sea and the lapping waves. Beautiful pic. The cycle of life as the waves is never ending.

Gypsy Rose Lee & cherylone: Not many HP points for saying things in a few lines of a few words, but satisfying nonetheless when folks like you and the others comment with approval and sharing. Thanks.
