25 february


when the sea is still


walking on the seashore just before a rain

even the waves are quiet and gentle as they came up upon the shore


the air heavy with mist

those long lost to the sea

come up then to bathe the tears from their loved ones

and share the healing waters

~


 let those who worship summer days

come then 

and traipse across the sands 

and lay their blankets down

~
I will sit here now

and hold hands with gentle souls 

we will not see again

and feel their foggy breath against my cheek

and know a gentle yearning in my soul

when the sea is still

  4. Beautiful photo and sentiment. It is different to go to the sea in the winter. Just as enchanting, and no crowds traipsing along. Thank you for this peaceful post.

  7. I lived for three decades on the Pacific West coast Canada, sometimes in isolated areas, you've taken a breath taking photo that mirrors your lovely prose or vice versa.

  8. Even though there is very little color in this shot, it's still beautiful! I love the serene feel of the beach fading into the sea and sky.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you

peace blogger
