Gifts from the Sea – A Poem

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

The universe brings me messages from the clouds.

Every evening, I walk down to the shore to kiss my mother ocean,

feel her body beneath my feet,

and make my prayers of gratitude for her blessings.

She greets me with cotton candy and fiery dancing of reds and yellows,

as day descends into night.

She shows me her creations of beautiful paintings

and brings me gifts of tiny seashells

perfectly shaped

to remind me how I too am perfectly shaped,

for we are both created from the sea.

She answers my questions with rushing waves

and soothes my fears with glowing light

thick brush strokes

that change by the second.

I open my heart and give my thanks

in return

and promise to come back again
