  • I want to run wild on a deserted beach
    sand beneath my feet
    wind tugging my hair
    taste salt on my lips
    breathe fresh sea air
    and laugh with the giddiness of freedom

    I want to dive into the ocean
    swim to the bottom of the sea
    I want to experience a place
    of deep calm and serenity

    I want to ride the waves of the ocean
    feel powerful and free
    dance upon the surf
    alive with possibility
    then surge towards the shore
    in one thunderous roar

    I want to whirl on the sand dunes
    feel high on love and light
    playful and fearless
    roll and tumble with delight

    I want to lie on the shore
    warm sand against my back and
    surrender myself to the joy
    of knowing

    that I'm home
    alive in my skin
    secure in my self
    my soul content
    my journey complete.
