Sadie of Keep it Alive has challenged us with an amazing picture to write our thoughts about. Spending a lot of my childhood on the sea, this really spoke to me so…here we go.
I PACE THE SHORELINE
I pace the shoreline. Where are you? Don’t you see the dark is coming?
I pace the shoreline. The smoke filled sky warns of the deadly fires across our land.
I pace the shoreline. The freezing waters turn my feet blue like the sea.
I pace the shoreline. Please understand how much I need you, how much I love you.
I pace the shoreline. The lighthouse laughs at me as it blink on and off. Can you see it?
I pace the shoreline. Waves crash gently against the lighthouse, assurance of a calm sea.
I pace the shoreline. I think I see the tiny silhouette of the boat. Could it really be you.
I pace the shoreline. Please come home to me.
We as humans are emotional creatures. These emotion are a gift from above but must be monitored carefully. Because if we let them have their own course of action, much pain can be made – not always on purpose. So I remind you always to remember the power of kindness, to use it often and to be aware of the beauty it creates.
Always be kind.
