A Life Alive

Post by koan »

A billowy shape of shifting shades

The clouds take their shape from my mind

The images bringing their meaning to me

Like a dream I can search them and find.

And below them the ocean ripples with life

Laughing and jumping to shore

As the tide laps the rocks at the tip of my toes

I feel like I've been here before.

Like the thousands of people who stood here before

The sun brings new life to my soul.

As I open my arms and invite into me

A sense of the world as a whole.

Not separate but part of the movement of time

I do have my own part to play

To tell of the things I have seen in the clouds

And how lovely the sea was that day.

I feel like a radio DJ on a Rock and Roll station that says, "Stay tuned because the hits just keep on coming."
