Once I stood upon a clifftop
where the wind rose up to brush my face
blowing my hair behind me.
It opened up my heart to feel,
God himself was coming at my heel.
As if I stood on the edge of time,
glimpsed beyond life itself,
heard the cry of gulls
beneath my feet,
howling some anguished message
in their desperate frenzy to eat.
I breathed the Ocean's scent
saw it's deep blue green erupt,
as it hit the hard rocks of time,
unbowed and unbent,
not to be tamed,broken or trapped,
mysteries remaining untapped,
perhaps only to be caught in my imagination,
like a photo, a painting,a dedication
for memories sake.
This magic,this ocean deep,
this pure,good energy,that heals and soothes,
where the water meets the skies,
within your eyes.
