There are times in life
when it feels as if
the horizon is all you have.
You want to be lifted
from your current shoreline
which has become rocky
and hard to navigate.
You have been in a season of loss
and your heart is wounded –
too much has changed for you.
In these times,
though the sea spray is still available
to refresh you,
and the music of the sea
still sings to you,
all you can see is the horizon.
Its beauty and hope
calls to your soul.
Its light reflects a joy
you long to feel again.
Its colors bless you with
the beauty of hope bestowed.
So, though your feet are torn
from the sharp edges
you have endured this season,
the horizon remains.
And as you take in its expanse of light,
your feet begin to find
the softer sand
to cradle your toes in warmth.
You remember you belong, after all.
You have found the gift of peace.

This is beautiful. We will all find the soft sand if we move toward our goals and stop complaining about the rocks
Thanks for this
Thank you! And yes, keeping the big picture in mind is usually wise and helpful. Be well.
We just have to keep moving forward to find the soft sand. I would like to walk into warm water.
Indeed! We have been forced into cold water of late, yes?
No, just not able to make it to warms waters.
