Waiting To Rise…

Tide rising,
Lifting,
Filling life’s voids,
Crags of emptiness,
Shoreline,
Washed,
Brine cleansing,
Ocean’s balm,
Embodying completion,
Promising higher grace,
Celestial gifts,
Spread with sea-foam,
Humbly received.

My heart,
Swathed in love,
I feel you rising,
Nourishing my longing,
Lifting me,
Life-giving,
Flushing loneliness,
Warmth, washing,
Silk touch, soothing…
All my life,
Waiting to exhale,
Waiting to find you,

Waiting to rise…

And live,
Again.

  5. Still afloat, drifting at sea
    on dreams of passion
    and intimacy.
    The tide is turning
    to set Love free
    inside of thee.

    In time and space
    there’s a special place
    Souls long to be.

    I hope you don’t mind me joining in
