The ocean amazes me
So vast, beautiful
What lies within is incredible
Another world, beautiful and dangerous
I’m frightened by the vastness
Yet I am mesmerized.
I love to walk barefooted on the beach in the evening
To watch the sun go down
Disappearing slowly into the horizon
As if swallowed up by the sea.
To watch the waves shimmer in the moonlight
Listening to the rushing sound of the tide
As it washes back and forth over my toes
Is this a glimpse of heaven?
I don’t know
But it’s a heavenly part of earth.
