the sea

the sea the simplicity and solace of the desert, dried and then refreshed my core now back home, i cannot resist looking out to sea

my gaze searches across the water and i hear a reminiscent tune its a song that beckons me to become aware like the song i heard in the desert which forced me to pause and to drink in the deep and dried out air

looking and listening creates such resolve i will not let life slip away

if i again am beckoned by a similar call i will not look the other way

if only for a moment i will take a true and honest breath

come what may
