Shifting Sands..

 

Having had a few days relaxing by the Ocean it was nice to just chill and watch the waves roll onto the shore as I sat on the beach looking out to sea.

Often we forget to have any ‘Me’ time, and I have to say I enjoyed a whole day just doing nothing, but reading, watching the ocean and the Sky and absorbing that wonderful refreshing air only the ocean can give us.. Nothing compares with that fragrance of Sea Salt in the air as I let the breeze wash over me cleansing my spirit as I let go of everyday problems..

I never go far without my journal and I was soon inspired to write a verse. and I took a photo which I’ve uploaded here which I think captures the poem which I wrote while looking out at this scene..

It isn’t long before Nature reclaims back, as you can see the sand had crept up these steps.. Out in the distance is the Wind-Farms.. A local man we spoke too complained bitterly of his view being spoiled.. While I said I would sooner have Wind farms than  a nuclear power station upon my doorstep…He turned his grumbling onto some other topic.. Some times that’s just the way of some people they have to Grumble about something.. And they Don’t Like Change.. But like the Sands as the wind shifts them, we have to understand that everything changes, nothing stays the same for ever.. And we need to embrace Change or we become stagnant and static..

I watched as the fishing boat trawled up and down most of the morning and I wondered what it was fishing as the gulls swooped in its wake.

I know I hauled in some Sea Energy that day.. 

And it was a Great Catch of the Day.

 

 Shifting Sands

Shifting Sands.

How do you capture the scene of your eyes?

As fishermen travel under blue skies

How do you capture the ebb and flow?

As the ocean speaks and you want time to go slow

How do you capture the cry of a gull?

As they swoop on down casting shadows so dull

How do you capture the sand as it drifts?

As it moves on the wind as it constantly shifts

How do you capture the smell of sea air

As to the horizon you sit and stare

How do you capture the sun on your skin?

As you sit on the shore and breathe everything in

How do you capture the beauty of this earth?

As you breathe in her essence and feel her worth

How do you Capture the Scene of your Eyes?

I write down these words with inward sighs.

    Yes I can see from your poem that you were truly inspired and also very relaxed, I think that sitting by the sea and breathing the crisp, fresh and delightful aroma is something special, just watching the waves rolling in, shutting the eyes, llistening to the breaking waves, one can catch the sense of inner awareness giving a cleaner edge to ones thought processes. I am pleased that you enjoyed your little beak my great friend 🙂 Have a lovely start to your week Sue 🙂

    A great blog Sue , I loved the words you penned regarding everything changes in time and if its for the better like wind vanes then so be it and I agree that sometimes we must learn to compromise.
    A beautiful poem Sue and I enjoyed the pic.
    Cheers

    Hi Sue yes it’s true I love a wander by the sea it’s such a wonderful free feeling. So glad you had a enjoyable time by the sea, even though you shared it with a grumbly fellow. Let him go on his merry way I say , for maybe a grumble makes him feel better…I wish I had been there with you Hugs Sheila 🙂 xxx

    Lol…I liked that comment re nuclear power stations and wind farm, to that grumbley-chops! Sort of thing that I would not have been able to resist coming out with…I’d probably have followed his change of grumble subject up with a query as to why? lol… was it such an uncomfortable truth that he must avoid it at all costs? lol 😉 Happy for you that you had such a great catch from the ocean that day and I do like that photo… 🙂

      LOL My lovely Wolfie… Normally IceWolfie I would have, but it had been such a chilled out day I didnt feel it worth getting all heated up about as I knew I wouldnt change his mind, So I left him walking his dog grumbling about the changable weather.. While I thought what a beautiful day it had been… 🙂
