Me & Myself
waking each morning, open to what life has to offer
Demands of everyday living can be difficult,
the busyness of being
the never-ending swirl of noise,
whether coming or going, my life is in constant motion.
I walk along the sea and welcome a new day
shining stars are stationary,
moonlight illuminates my way.
There is silence in the air
reflection, a serene time of mindfulness.
The darkness lifts, I sense an exchange
an opportunity to see and receive a new day.
The world is waking, there is complete calmness strolling the shoreline
sea birds peacefully mingle
tides leave their mark in footprint free sand
waves stir without occupancy, creating a rhythmic sound.
My aloneness is short-lived
as morning solitude becomes a souvenir,
a tranquil reminder with every step
inner and outer silence can exist.
My walks with me, provide time for restoration.
Mastering the art of stillness
is a gift the sea has given me.
