Ocean Walk

Ocean Walk 1

Ocean Walk

I’ve reached the midpoint

The place where I have to turn

Going back where I came from

 

My way here was wondrous

Boisterous, powerful

Alone

 

I walked away from my childhood home

Until I could walk no further

 

I’ve reached the midpoint

The place where I have to turn

Going back where I came from

 

I’m going to walk back

closer to the water

even though my foot prints may be erased

I will have been able to touch infinity

And that is good enough for me

 

Every shell

Every stone

Touched by the ocean water

Glistens and shines

They are so noticeably alive

 

Those that are dry

So dulled and lifeless

 

So I choose to walk near the water

Even though my memory is erased

I still will have glistened and shone

 

Even though my memory was erased

Even though everything was changed

When I walked away from my childhood home

 

I still will have glistened and shone

I still will have glistened and shone

  3. Beautiful to read, for me, kind of melancholic and bittersweet: what remains and what it is washed away.

  4. Thanks, Steve. Hopefully not TOO melancholic…I don’t ever want people to walk away depressed. 🙂 Though there is a sadness in realizing our memories won’t last forever, I still think each of our lives makes an impact. Especially yours…you bring a great bit of ingenuity to us all, and I always appreciate your feedback. Have a good week 🙂
