Ocean Dance The Ocean. so big, endless God's way of telling you that you are one humble creature small I may be, but I can learn the ways of this place. I press my toes into soft sand, and reach, stretch, my arms out fingers extended, toes pointed step with the saline water as it pulls step back and twirl as the next wave hits raise my eyes to the beauty of the heavens feel the sun on my face leap, turn, step up and out the waves can't hurt if you are moving with them. I spin ever so gracefully and catch the eyes of people staring as though I'm crazy. obviously they haven't tried this. so I feel free to smile and continue my dance with the ocean.

Thanks Waistband :) loved Deciding Steps. So much resolve and determination and insight in a single poem that I know will stick with me.
