Night falls in the canyon tonight
Over-looking the Pacific ocean.
The stars cover the sky like a curtain
Of rare sparkling diamonds without end.
The air carries a faint smell of iodine
From sea-weed washed up on shore.
The ocean breeze tastes like sea salt
On the tongue, and the scent of Verbena
Brings back memories that please the heart.
Walking to the ocean’s edge, brings the sound
Of waves lapping against the shore and the
Faint cry of a seagull is heard in the distance.
I sigh with relief, and feel my breath rise and fall
To the rhythm of the waves crashing against the rocks.
Peace flows in and around each cell in my body.
The light of the moon throws a path across the water
And ends at my feet where the light enters.
It is warm and slowly flows to each part of me,
Bathing me with a light filled with kindness and joy.
Peace enfolds me as I allow the ocean’s song to
Calm my restless soul.
