Hope Moving in Our Oceans

20190719_151540

Hope seldom comes down vertically, as if falling down from above, usually hope moves along horizontally from one person,

to another, to another, to another…… as in waves moving through our oceans.

Have you encouraged someone today?

Sweet Summer Memories

100_0890

In those waves where light seems to glitter,

ride memories

of a boy on a raft,

of body surfing, and wipe outs

and dreaming

of being old enough

to drive,

a Chevy of course

old enough to take Marianne

on a date……

would she want to dance?

Suddenly a seagull woke the old man….

squawking again

for a piece of bread.

He reached into the bag

and threw some crumbs in the air…..

longing for more

of his sweet summer memories.

Fractured

100_1457

When our hearts are torn and broken we often go digging

for gold, justifying our need for redemption

we climb the wrong mountain

seek the wrong window

to be opened.

Simply so,

we can be loved.

     

And yet

the sun sparkling

on the waves

tells us –

we are loved

already.

Five Things I Love About the Ocean

100_1490

I love when My Love and I sit on the beach, with our feet buried in the sand, relaxing to the sounds of the waves.

I love watching a sunset on the ocean, as My Love and I embrace, entangled in each other’s arms, with our faces buried in each other’s necks.

I love when  My Love searches for seashells, as the waves wash her feet.

I love that the ocean is untamed, and that we cannot control the tides.

I love that if we lose our way, the ocean will always show us infinity once again.

So We Can Love Again

100_1502

When our love for humanity is devastated by the sins

of rhetoric, deeds of the unholy – there is

still a source of singing, the music

deep within us, bringing

healing to others

going deeper.

      

And I love how the earth is cleansed

every day as if the Creator

is forgiving – pointing us

to the waves

washing us,

so we can love again.

Surrender

Oceans 262

The ocean said, I will not give myself,

fully to you, until you love me,

until you take your whole self,

and let it go,

listening to my waves,

opening fully, your eyes,

listening for my heartbeat,

do you hear it?

My ways are endless,

can you see beyond,

the horizon?

surrender and feel,

the infinity.

Let us embrace.
