Given Unto the Sea

I love spending time with the Ocean. She changes my entire perspective. Many of my writings have been done seaside, with camera in hand.


Cradle of salty Desire
soothe my soul
the savage beast of ego
that rears its head
to teach me compassion.
wash away that which is
finished
leaving it on some distant shore
to nurture – to decay – to fertilize.

Hold me for a fortnight
while I release unto you
all I have clung to desperately.
I give you all longing
all desire
all mis-understanding
all projection
wash away my mis-takes
birth me anew again
That I may take your Light
home and grow up to
be like you for others.
