Saturday, April 23, 2011 the ocean...

at the ocean.
there is silence in the waves.
at the ocean.
there are many different colors of blue.
at the ocean.
you can let yourself be one.
with the sand, the water and the wind.
at the ocean.
you dare to whisper your dreams. the ocean.
there is a calmness.
that can't help but cover you.
if you let it.
taste, touch, sight ,sound, smell.
breathe her in,
let it out.
at the ocean.

six days ago.
at the ocean.
seriously...trying to find
the words.
and i don't think
i've done it justice.
we all bring something different to her.
but she touches so many of us the same way.
i am content.
i am grateful.
my cup of just BE.
is full.
now on to shadows.
to sunshine and objects.
to shadows.
may your thoughts be silent.
so you can hear the waves.
just BE.

Greeted by a gull--what a blessing!


Even in shadow where there is no light,
One may take comfort and one may delight
That darkness has lost its power to thrall
Those who are living on this earthly ball.

"may your thoughts be silent.

have a great week.

The sun is filtered through the briny surf, adding lovely shadows that fall upon the manicured toes. Likewise, the gull adds character to the surf, loitering over the waves with a soft shadow, too. This was probably perfect, FL in April warm but not too tropical. Wonderful memories!

Cute tootsies! That gull must have spread its wings just for the photo, they are perfect, just like the ocean. I love the words and the thought behind them. Water does that to people I think. My post today features an ocean theme as well for Shadow Shot Sunday. Very nice all around.

I so love your words:
"my cup of just BE.
is full..."
Such a sacred sense of inner peace!

And that first photo with watery light and shadow playing around a foot enjoying the gentle bathe of water is so delightful!

Both excellent ShadowShots Robin, though the footsie is my fave. Happy Easter to you and yours.
