wet feet

loon

It was 9:15pm. I went for a night walk on the beach (which I typically don’t do after a vigorous workout at the gym) but I felt a desire to do so. I’ve learned that sometimes the Spirit will lead us to do things that feel natural and are even desirable. I have a hard time believing that my own desires are what led me to walk the beach that night. Especially considering all… Read the rest

senses

senses
There is no better time than now to have my senses cease,
You’ve walked along into my life and caused a loss of peace.

My eyes beheld your elegance and now I cannot sleep,
They’ve gazed upon your beauty and have caused my heart to leap.

My ears have caught your singing voice and now they’re truly blessed,
I hang on every note, you’ve caused… Read the rest

blind

blindI’d give up my sight,
Just to feel your warm touch.

For vision is nothing,
But your love is much.

A beauty so brilliant,
Your soul emits light.

A passionate heart,
That transcends my own sight.

fathom

fathomBeckoned by such peacefulness,
I walk into her waves.

Her soft, caressing currents,
Entice me from the shore.

Majestic swells of passion,
Blinding salty haze.

Murky blue intentions,
I can’t withstand much more.

Amongst the salty spires,
I gasp for one last breath.

Crushing walls of azure sea,
Close in from high above.

As light… Read the rest

spark

sparkInspiration comes and goes,
Although, when called, it rarely shows.

It’s rise and fall resembles tides,
We seek and search, it stealthily hides.

We long to bask in it’s warm rays,
Yet when it comes it seldom stays.

So once again we’re in the dark,
Awaiting yet another spark.

flame

flameAs though I am a candle,
Your love, radiating brightly as a flame.

I take in your warmth and beauty,
Slowly, as you melt me away.

Amber glow of comfort,
You light up my soul.

Never to be extinguished,
Shielded from wind by my strong grasp.

Forever fueled by passion,
I melt around you.

youth

youthTime is the distance between memories,
And our memories are separated by miles.

I’d travel great lengths to revisit the days,
A treasure of heart warming smiles.

However life lies before me,
An unchartered expanse of truth.

Yet still throughout my journey,
Are never-ending memories of youth.

surf

beach surfI walk this slate, wiped clean by surf,
My feet draw lines across the earth.

A sentence fragment punctuated,
Gulls just laugh at what’s created.

Senseless verses, some would think,
Wrote with disappearing ink.

Temporary words from motion,
Put to death by jealous ocean.

a beautiful moment

ocean jetty at nightPeaceful. There’s a faint mist in the air the gives the night sky a black velvet appeal. The stars are glistening and the atmosphere is still. Sandpipers are skittering across the mirror glazed sand like drops of water tossed into a hot frying pan as waves generously lap onto the shore. The beach is eerily abandoned as though I missed some sort of urgent evacuation order. This bench is moist from the mist,… Read the rest

simply be

Stumpy Lake sun
Fast forward and pause, slow-motion, rewind,
I wish that my heart took control of the time.

When the waiting is hard and the future seems far,
I’ll press into knowing how lovely You are.

So perfectly timed with the gifts that are planned,
I relax in the fact that they come from Your hand.

As I sit here and know that Your love… Read the rest
