How lonely it is!
Even lonelier than Suma.
Autumn at this beach.
What do the waves bring?
Mixed in with little shells,
Bits of clover blooms.
My soul yearns:
for the deafening sound of waves as they move in unison with the flow of my in and out-breath,
to connect with Earth through the sensual textures of her sand,
to be defined by the ocean’s breeze’s slight touch in her passing
for the loneliness at dusk without the sea is overpowering
but alas, I am land bound and am unable to offer a newly created image for this week’s challenge – sea.
I invite you to visit WordPress’ weekly photo challenge to view additional posts created specifically for photos demonstrating the concept of sea.
The Narrow Road to Oku
