Morning walks along ocean’s shore
Mesmerized by fast breaking waves
Watching them wash upon the shore
Leaving sprinkled shells in their wake
In prelude to returning back out to sea.
Feeling crunching sand beneath my feet
Smelling welcome freshness in salty air
While mild ocean breeze caresses me,
Approaching small marina at ocean’s inlet
Observing boats, different sizes and colors.
Circling back along ocean’s shore
Diving boldly into breaking waves
Swimming out towards open horizon
Then turning back to face the shore
Letting waves wash me to the sand.
Finding tranquility in ocean’s rhythms
Seen in reflections of glistening sunlight
Fully mesmerized by movement of waves,
Placid thoughts with peaceful feelings.
