The Ocean in Me
Standing on the shore, caressing the sand with my toes and listening with eyes closed, to the sound of the sea.
The rhythm of my breathing begins to shift, to synchronize with the powerful ebb and flow of the ocean gently pulsing along the shore. The ocean exhales and extends toward my toes. My whole being awaits…reaching toward this moment of contact.
I breathe in the sea spray, sensing the salt inside my nose and inside all my cells. I recognize the smells of my own inner sea.
Our salines match.
I am from the ocean. I am part of ocean. And the ocean lives in me.
