There is that place where earth, sea,
and sky merge and serge upon the land,
Infinite waves of energy rise up to touch the sky,
only to rumble and tumble down.
Upon this thin strip of hot sand and sun,
the light grows and shows a great beauty,
A giant fireball rising out of the blueness,
to brighten and heighten itself in stature.
Great tidal forces move water and sand,
sweeping and creeping it slowly away,
Leaving a surface behind that’s just so flat
and fit for a brand new day of fun.
Even before the sun works its way upward
and onward into its steady cycle,
Birds of many kind conspire to find
and fill themselves with the oceans bounty.
Golden rays intruding fire and
inspire many more to rise to the occasion,
To open their eyes and heart to see
and be one with what surrounds them.
To walk upon the space
and place where three become one and one becomes three,
To journey along a realm where your will hear
but not fear the cold chilly depths.
Sounds of thunderous crashes glide
and slide upon each other just off shore,
Wave after wave they continue to fade
and evade into a blur of constance.
Everyday, and every minute this song sings
and rings over the dunes and docks,
Always, white washes of water erase
and replace ocean footsteps left behind.
