Meeting Today At Hanalei Bay

Unapologetic gray

engulfed the smirking turquoise bay,

stained my spirit

with imaginary shadows

as my knowing feet

sank deep

into the wet sand,

traversing the slithering line,

boundary defining land

and sea.

Chaos and questions flickering,


across the surface of my mind

while my eyes swam


about the slow dancing face

of the tame, spacious bay.

Striving to find peace

in this mischievous play

of restrained, prismatic light.

as I fight my habits

of fear.

I hear a clear, soundless whisper rise

from Inside,

“I am nearer than you know,

Oh lady of Grace.

The Sea who is me,

who is You,

who is We

runs beyond deep.”

And then my feet taste

the cold sweet song of River

as she reaches the beach

pouring forth her lucidly streaming body

into the warm, holy Ocean’s mouth

where I too

and even You, Beloved

will soon outpour once more.

But until then

I surrender to this gray day,

to this heart who sinks

with each arduous step.

To these blessed feet

wet with communion between

River and Ocean.
