In my lowliest of times i find myself thinking of me in places i desire like shores, mountains, the great wall of China, Los Angeles, Seychelles etc. Before i get into the exercise today, i would love to tell you a story.

Today, i was compelled to go the bank to make some deposit- mother’s order. I never knew it was going to take more than two hours to actually get into the bank because of Covid which was and still is my fond reason for not going to the bank to do anything.

I won’t bore you with the whole stress on standing for five hours- i am not kidding. While i waited for my turn in front of the cashier, a dark thick Muslim whose facial expression reeked a great deal of frustration because the counting machine kept on with its habit of scattering the money it was supposed to count smoothly. I just could not but smile at what i saw, not her facial expression this time, but letters beneath my feet. it said:

Think outside of the box but stay within the circle.

Sublime, right? I just could not help but smile and think on it. At least it eased the stress of standing. The aforementioned quote is no loner. Do you see the connection with the words and the beautiful picture by Michelle Huggelmann and the words ‘Shores and me’?

Sea Duct

No wave ever
found Me like this one
Ebb & flow onto my toes
Flip-flops up to my tank top
on its way down to my heart

Wrapped as wind now
around a grass blade
I feel it cut a new breath

Sparkles formed
& now heated
It sees my
own Shore
& so retreated

I sit on the shore
My favorite place to be
The ocean is a different
It has the power to heal
Jump in you’ll feel
It’s the place i go to
Find my zen
I will go there’s sometimes
Just me and a friend
To meditate
This brings me joy
To no end
Go to the shore
Without a watch
See how do your
Soul will change
I bet a lot

Here on this shore
dawn lingers
beauty sings
my heart has
grown wings
voraciously loving
the hidden melodies
so much of me
cast out to sea
under my sun hat
thoughts of you laughs
i wanted more of that.

I am the ocean
you, my tide
how strong your pull
how weak I resist
You carry upon your waves
all I have ever wanted
giving but then taking
leaving me restless, forlorn
Between your shores & me
lies all that could exist
all that ever mattered
as I am left sinking in sand

California’s Eyes

Met my fate in California’s eyes
she took my mind
I dove deep to escape
but saw her everywhere.

Looking back I see me
longing for her embrace
tasting our first ride
a wave without a shore.

Chills find her memory
delighting lost shadows
they’re part of mine
she sees me everywhere.
