I have been trying to find the right words to express what it felt like sitting on the beach last week in North Carolina last week on vacation. It was a feeling on insignificance, but yet peace. I was going to try to put my words around a blog, but decided to try my hand in poetry. Indulge me!
Your waves crash on the beach
Your breeze blows across my face
The sun beats on me, just me
Decisions to be had,
Deadlines to be made,
Not today as I hide my feet in your sand
The enormity of your being
makes me feel insignificant…
….but strangely at peace
The things you have seen,
The years you have thrived
make my years pale in comparison
Is there someone just like me on
your other side feeling the same way?
Watching your waves?
Feeling your breeze?
Problems to be addressed
Emotions to be discovered
Not today as I dive into your waves
And get lost in you
