Waves

 

 

Moving to a beach town was an awakening for me.  I love the ocean.  In particular where it meets the earth and the turbulence that occurs. There is nothing more calming than the rhythmic sound it creates and the tranquility that it brings. The aliveness of the planet becomes most evident here…

The poem “waves”by  Jaclyn C. Stevenson says it all….

waves

Unpredictable and endless,
steady and rolling:
so are the waves in which we whirl,
in crests and swells,
and often, storm.

The rudderless many fight the tides,
searching for beacons among juts and jags

and these aimless vessels, I know them well
I know the swims of struggle

but a current has pushed me
from an ocean too vast
into a familiar sea.

And at once, I am buoyed.

I float, I breathe

for
I am home.

Jaclyn C. Stevenson
