Breathe in Water

I sit within the arc of aging
strong with weight
of years in silence,
worn to round
like rocks against the sea,
tides of gain and loss
shaping, reshaping
while below the surface
star fish brilliant
breathe in water
turning salt and sea
to light.

    . . . tides of gain and loss shaping, reshaping . . .
    How thankful I am for the artistry of your heart, mind, and soul, always
    reminding me of the brilliance waiting to be increased in myself. Thank you for the openings you provide, as you nurture and attend to your own. Happy Solstice to you Don . . . Happy Increase of Light!

    Rocks worn round with age becoming smaller –
    The circle they leave becoming larger
    Truely touching the season
    thanks, Don

  5. Living at 7,000 feet, I’ve observed the natural phenomenon of light trapped between snow and low, heavy clouds giving such brilliance to nighttime. “You could read a newspaper”, they say. Your words, “…turning salt and sea to light” caused me to rethink “light trapped” between snow and clouds. It is light transformative in this dry and ancient land. I read your words of water as I walk this enchanted land formed by fire. They are but elements of light patiently shared between us.
    Thank you again for your poetic invitation to pause and think with my heart.
