  • Picture yourself near the water
    perched on a high-round boulder
    knees pulled-up & wrapped by arms
    with your chin gently resting

    Sense the sunshine through your jacket
    all the way to your skin
    an urging to close the eyes
    all the way to bone

    Sound of the sea waves slapping
    beginningless & endless
    this is the way it’s always been
    & a truth about who we are
