Dear sea, do you hear me? Do you hear me typing?
What do you think and feel about how I sound?
Do you smile and close your eyes when you hear me?
Are you excited that we are so close to each other?
I am elated to be near you.
Hearing you I think of healing –
your salty waters that cleanse and crystallize,
your deep blues and turquoise shades that vary,
your ever-transforming surface that ripples, then rises in white-capped waves.
I picture the countless grains of sand along your bottoms, the creatures moving with life,
shells and stones changing each second with the wearing of time and your touch.
I love you sea, whether I hear or see you, it is a dream to know you are there so close.
You give life and delight and I am glad you are part of my life; glad that we share this world.
