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
eternal
watching her waves
wearing a prayer shawl
of peace...
peace

be still

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

just be still

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

The wonderful use of metaphors,smooth rhythm and vivid imagery help the reader to visualize such a wonderful place. The ebb and flow to the words has a soothing effect as a person reads it.Well done!

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
