By the Sea…

By the sea the tide goes out.
With it goes the weight I own, and as the waves crash back on the shore they carry easier breath.

By the sea the music is sweeter.
Birds keep time as the wind carries with it salt and earth and charm and freedom.

By the sea I’ve made new friends.
Fishermen, jokers, givers and takers. All of them providing exactly what I need, whether I know it or not.

By the sea I am nourished.
Water and Sunlight. Quiet and sound. Food and drink. Friends and strangers. Love and Peace. Each of these feed my soul.

By the sea the tide comes in and I am living simple.
Day by day. Step by Step. Running even, in directions I may once have been afraid to go.

By the sea I fly.
