at the shore
yearning arises in me
gazing from eastern horizon to western horizon,
and stretching south, as far as my eyes can see,
lies endless grey green water,
waves rolling in from beyond.
i yearn to merge with the ocean.
looking above in all directions,
beckons limitless blue expanse,
speckled with white clouds.
i yearn to embrace the sky.
i try to comprehend what i am seeing.
i can not.
my mind cannot grasp the immensity of ocean and sky.
my heart feels its way into this vastness,
into this unfathomable mystery.
my energy body expands, and keeps expanding, into this space,
so vibrant and alive all around me.
my animal body resonates with the elements of earth, water, fire, air,
instinctively knowing and connecting with this terrain.

i find how to be with the immensity of ocean and sky.
i cannot explain this.
my body and my heart . . .
k n o w . . .
h o w . . .
to merge with the ocean
and embrace the sky.
