Beneath #Poetry

Digging my toes in,

I let the ocean tug at me

& then I began walking

towards the horizon,

the water swirling,

Tug – tugging me deep

& effortlessly dancing

& my mind silently reciting

Psalm twenty three

I

let

my

knees

go

weak

as the salted tide

pulsed all around me

I closed my eyes

in the quiet here

just beneath

and in between

all those

broken memories

feeling the salt sting

and tears becoming

part of all that was

flowing around me

and prayed for peace.
