Heaven's Beach


Heaven's Beach

Heaven's Beach

so very vast
this inland sea
whose width and depth
release for me
the smallness
and fear of trying

just be

I could sit here
watching her waves
wearing a prayer shawl
of peace...

be still

this timelessness
whispers so calm
of acceptance
healing and balm
a heartache; a crying

just be still

this "heaven's beach"
a haven found
time breaks here
on the very ground
a glimmer of heaven

Ah I am reading and listening and I hear you and even see the prayer shawl and I take it and add a prayer while watching the water ebb and I am transfixed by the lulling of the waves......gosh this got my brain juices going.....great read for me....good picture...



Thanks so much for taking time to read! I always love seeing what others have to say. This is one of my favorite pieces, so I am glad you enjoyed it.

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
