if your eyes are closed 

you can’t see everything

but you may feel warmth and light in the distance  


if you have good ears

and you live by water

you can hear it

it’s kind of a shushing sound

it’s for when you want to be comforted

salt is considered a cleanser

and the taste is like the ring of a bell

something awakens

others may not like the scent of the ocean

but i do 

even the seaweed 

and something in the air 

that feels like 

something caught in something 


never stops moving

that is finally still

and the way wet sand feels

as you walk

as you sink 

and sometimes you feel even one or two grains 

on the sands of a beach

this can be a joyful discovery

whether there is sun or fog or rain within the sky
