The ocean teaches us about love.
Breath and life pour into us without hesitation the instant we reach where the sea meets the shoreline.
The waves kiss our toes sending a chill up our spine,
while extracting the pain from our wounds.
The sea hears us,
with a drenched, longing soul,
and wants to know all of our secrets.
Just when we begin to embrace
the rush that comes from
the ancient, salty medicine
penetrating our DNA,
ride the rhythm of the tides,
the waves splash through us,
cleansing us of unwanted ties.
If we’re lucky enough
to make it back to shore,
the faint whispers heard in a language all their own won’t soon be forgotten...
