In awe I stand

Feet steadied upon

Emerald cliffs

Inhaling breath of sky

Heart-quickened, earth-smitten

Tickle of sea mist on my tongue

I surrender thoughts to the waves

Trundle with ocean’s tide

Erasing all but this moment

Time still…. (passes)

Each second a blessing

  5. Your poem shows the inherent contrast of the ocean and sands, the cyclical turn of waves and shifts of sand mark the passing of time. But the waves smooth out into a flat horizon and the sands rearrange themselves into recurring constancy, showing that stillness is the true interstium there. You had me bobbing in the salts, so beautiful, well done.

  6. What strikes me about this is the interplay of place/nature and emotion. These touch us so significantly.
