The sea is calm – expression is being alive

This poem will be included in my second book of poetry. I hope you like my first book of poetry, Moments as they Come.

There is a storm out at sea
But the sun is shining here
The ocean is calm
The breath moves in rhythm
With the gentle swaying of the water

Found my groove
What I love, yet didn’t know the extent
It was a long fight
Planned to be someone else
But I looked right in front of me
And the answer appeared from the deepest depth

Joy has returned to the full extent
A surrendering of the present
A celebration of gifts received
And a giving in return
For I need nothing from you
Your joy is mine

Creativity continues in sync with the waves
It’s an authentic celebration of self
Expression is being alive
That’s enough
