Gentle Kisses

The Wave

“Time and tide waits for no man. ”

Geoffrey Chaucer

The ocean is never still
Flowing and receding stealing kissing from shore.
Soft kisses at times
Some are passionate, like they are demanding more

Gently licking the shore as it whispers hello
Close your eyes
listen to its caresses
The tide ebbs again
And the shore it undresses

Serene, tranquil and kind it can be
Wind, the moon, earths energy
Undulating, swelling, surging
Altered emotions take hold in the vast sea

Dancing on the crest of a wave
Exhilarating, intoxicating
Mysterious sea, hold my heart so brave

I’m under the waves
Crashing, rolling me around
Sunlight hitting me through a giant water prism
Thunderous crashing is my only sound
Holding me in a whirlpool prison

Sunlight brighter, I reach through
Blinking through my watery eyes
Still enthralled by my ocean so blue

I have reached my fabulous 50s. Guess what, it’s okay. 20 years in the health and wellness industry. Educating men and women on the importance of nourishing their bodies with good food, moving with integrity, recharging their energy levels and empowering their minds. I love my job. A mother of two boys who are now men and my greatest achievement. A lover of words, an aspiring author with a book written and no idea where to go next, a poet who writes from the heart and her vulnerability. A foodie who loves to experiment, a salad lover , But not just your Every day salad, I throw in anything you can think of it ends up in my salad. I have a reputation for making the greatest weirdest salads around. As a total contradiction, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I rescue abandoned souls in the bodies of dogs, an animal lover, Who sometimes likes animals more than humans. My teacher in life, my mother never ceases to amaze me. I am one fortunate human being who is filled with gratitude for the life she lives.
