Calming Waves


Staring at the ocean

calms the soul.

Listening to the waves

crash against the shore.

Watching the clouds

as they roll.

Knowing that the only

escape from what is

inside her head is

in the waves in

front of her.

Feeling the calming

breeze against her skin.

Listening to the whisper

of the waves as they

hit against the sand.

Never knowing what

to expect.

Finding solace in the

atmosphere of the beach.

Feeling at home amongst

the waves and the sand.

Letting the cool breeze

wash away her fears.

Hiding her sorrows in

the sands beneath

the ever crashing waves.

A wonderful poem. It is true, by walking on the sand and feeling the breeze and the charming music of sea makes us forget our sorrows.
