California Sunset

On the edge of the beach I stand,

I don’t feel small next to you,

rather I feel part of the earth

The roar of the tide,

the billowing wind,

the fleeting heat of your mass.

Here I feel my feet dance again upon the sand

Pirouetting around while the wind catches beneath my arms

I’m pulled to you,

like your tide is pulled by the moon

My body is not mine

it is of this earth

And here I’m reminded of my footing

my purpose to serve

I look for you wherever I go,

when I feel I’ve lost my way.

Your waves,

your calm pull.

I may never be able to touch the California sunset again

But I won’t forget the comfort of your presence

your purpose

our time

my dream
