Thoughts and Feelings I felt while visiting California Beaches Posted on October 29, 2016November 7, 2016 by beach Oh passersby in yonder train, This beach is a mystery, Why not stop and stay for a bit? A place of wonders. Take a break and dive in. Broken pier from our past, How many ships have you seen? Never again will you be, Now is the time to sleep. Tidal waters rising high, Coastal plains disappear. We are left in wonder. What is beneath the depths? Who is hiding from view? Away waves crash upon the shore, Awaiting footsteps to wash away. Many creatures have walked along, Who has been here before? Life points towards its creator, The sun so bright, Its rays bring healing light, To all those ready to accept. Once anchored to the ocean floor. Lifted from your home below Laying on the beach, Life will arise from thee. Toiling with their hands, The world grows around. From a point springs life, To give us sustenance, How you sacrifice. Withering away as time passes, Where will you go? To the earth, from which you arose. Rebirth will be your destiny. Dust blowing in the wind. Where are you heading? What did you belong to? Conquering land and water, An island unto thee shall be.
