Embracing Renewal

I tell you, there was something amazingly different about the way I felt.
I’m no dreamer, psychic or seer, but there was imagination everywhere
I paced the floor, wondering about the strong winds on a night so clear
I could feel and hear with certainty, a rushing sound, pounding inside my ear
Slowing the pace, I quieted myself so carefully, discovering nothing to fear
I reached through the window, and touched the mighty wind as it grew near
I looked towards the vast ocean, and watched the high tides appear

As I engulfed the sea breezes, a bright light suddenly approached from the rear
The soothing breezes and the light informed me that this would be a different year
Feeling the warm embrace of love, hope, and peace, my calmed soul released a tear

As the moon and the stars reappeared, the wind spoke in a whisper and said, “keep your eyes on the clear sky, and you many now cease to cry”.

The ocean tides, standing tall, spoke to me in a gentle voice, “Stand on my waters and flow with me; be brave and ride my waves

The light looked so bright and felt so pure,
As it wrote a message on the walls of my heart.
Clearly I was embracing renewal and a new start

The message from the light was clear:
“As you dry your tears and walk on the waves,
My light will brighten your path, and lead you on

Embracing The Sea

Embracing The Sea short poem

Sensuous touch of sea Waves whispering to me Enfold me in its close embrace Stirring my soul With eternal joy. Every grain of sand Tells a story As the voice of sea Speaks to my soul Of passions in life.
