Endless Motion

Day 3 at the Shore

Always in motion
My blue-gray ocean,
Surging and heaving, 
I grew up believing,
She knew me.

Whirling and flowing
In rhythmic motion.
My breath is in sync.
All the while, I think---
Time obliterates. 

One breath and I'm bracing
For waves o' re breaking.
New breath--it's my daughter
Splashing life in the water.

Next breath it's her child,
Generations profiled
In melodious song 
To which we belong.

Time swirls and foams
Tickling my toes.
Endless emotion,
My blue-gray ocean.
 

Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Lensball, Beach, Sea, Glass Ball


Deep calls unto deep at the noise of your waterfalls; All Your waves and breakers have gone over me. Psalm 42:

    1. You are most welcome. Wondrous days at the beach! Kids’ lips turning blue yet insisting they are not cold. I get to wrap them in warm towels and hug and hug them until warm. What a gift.
