Sunday Morning Poetry

my soul sighs

Go he said,
Until rock gives way to sea, gives way to
Salt and air and the elements all—
Until feet touch land that creaks, melts and sighs.
Rippling, crashing, splitting beneath you,
It’s tired arms open to the cold of night—
Everything frozen, everything hushed.
And then, with eyes at rest, look closely.
Closer.
Closer still.
And in that moment, you will find me—
Indeed you will see.
~ author unknown, actually from an Anthropolgie catalog

I always find such beautiful words here. Sometimes they are yours, other times they are someone else's. I always enjoy them.
