Water Weave

And the clouds

Bowed

To ocean

Weaving rain

Waves to sky

Kissing veils

Onto mountains

Drenching wet

Speeding by.

Come on friend

We will walk

On this sand

To the end

Of the earth

And return

Just before

A new night

Falls again.

Window Wonder

Reflection InbarAsif

If the world’s reflected

Like a mirror

In the windows

Of your mind,

Would you know to tell

The difference

Between inside

And outside?

Ocean Breath

In the curl

Between inhale

And exhale

Breathes an ocean.

In it all

That can ebb

And will flow

As we come

And we go,

Scent of eons

And life

Surf to soul

Calming strife.

Baby Seated

In the shade

Out of sun

I am still

Having fun.

Even these

Stubborn bubbles

Will stop

Giving me troubles.

I’ll persist

And resume

Turning a chair

To a play room.

Life’s Elixir

In the cradle of life

Where all breathing

Begins

Rocks the ebb

Of all else

That we are

Deep within.

Listing favorites can take days,

Shuffled as they are in time and space,

But here are a few that my spirit

Will always embrace:

Beach and surf,

Little toes,

The peal of

Children’s laughter,

A good tale, a new book,

And loved ones

To look after.

Ocean Ohm

As the world tilts between breath

And release,

As the sea ebbs and flows

Into peace,

I remember my core

The heartbeat

Of my soul,

Batteries filled again

Making my spirit

Whole.

Maine Wind

Maine Wind NaamaYehuda

Even as all others hunkered down

Ahead of the incoming hurricane

And seaweed caked foam splattered sand

She walked on,

Her umbrella

Less a shield

Than battleground.
