The Ocean And Its Treasure

I reach the sand to watch the sunrise-
With the gentlest shades of purple, pink, orange,
and with the sun spreading out its arms
to cover the land.
The breeze kisses my cheeks.
The waves brush my feet,
whisking all my worries out to sea.
My body becomes one with the ocean.
My breathing starts to slow and is in sync
with the waves as the softly lick the shore.
I can feel the heartbeat of all the life surrounding me
from the smallest clam buried under the sand
to the seagulls flying high above.
This soon becomes too much to bear
when I felt what they felt

and experienced what they experienced.
I felt like I was one with them
I knew their memories
and what their purpose was.
I can’t help but wonder if this is what the world
was meant to be with everyone doing their part.
I wonder if I belong here with them or somewhere else.

Great word usage(I suppose that is what it's called)!I felt the ocean!Favorate line- "The breeze kisses my cheeks" and "with the waves as they softly lick the shore(I think you meant to write a "y" there)". They're just awesome sentence majic. My favorate stanza is the last one. The last sentence of it had left me wondering too.

(sorry if this may be a duplicate. It froze on me while posting)

I really like this and can relate well with it. I go hiking a lot in the mountains, and I really feel at home in nature. Well done.
