I wrote this poem today as whenever I am by the sea it’s beauty and majesty never cease to take my breath away. One of my favorite quotes ‘So many things are locked in wordlessness’ which is a Steinback quote, aptly names the experience.
As well as a recent phrase I read which described humans as being limited by our senses. Words cannot even begin to describe the experience but I had to try. I hope you enjoy.
My soul wails seeking solace
From the grime and the menace
As I hear the ocean chorus
I am drawn to my bliss
The gulls call me
Beckoning to their abalone sea
Aqua marine soul energy
Clambering through the dunes joyfully
My bare feet curl on the ribs of sand
I witness the ocean wave its cresting hand
The graceful sea grass whispers to my mind
Taste the sea air, inhale, unwind.
My angst begins to unfurl
My empty shell becoming impearled
The ocean’s labradorite hues become my world
As I glisten within becoming a little girl
