The Mirror Of The Sea

Everyday seems to begin as silhouettes along the shore and perhaps beyond. Those moments just before the sun opens that one eye over the horizon in the midst of the orange hues. Birds and people, palms and piers just seem to be detail-less and devoid of character. The air this morning was still and quieted the surf and turned it into a liquid glass that was at odds with what should have been. I wanted to stand up and walk out over the mirror of the sea. Waves came in silently and timidly kissed the sands in reverence and departed in barely noticeable awe.

Sitting there with my feet and hands buried in the sand and crushed coquina, I too was feeling the hush as I watched morning unfold. To my right on the pier were seagulls waiting on the rails for their cue to rise into the air with the coming rise. A few people dotted the beach for morning walks and perhaps to glean the nights treasures left on the sands. I couldn’t help but wonder why anyone would sleep through what was unfolding as I saw the first edge of the sun’s orb break the blue.

Amazingly it didn’t disturb the horizon one bit and continued to create a most perfect color blend in the morning sky. I felt like a ragamuffin this morning sitting there physically weak and hollow from the demands my body had endured trying to finds it’s strength again. Lifting my hands, small particles of shells had coated them as if I had turned to shell. Tides were finding my toes and the surf was cooling and pooling around my feet like a wake up call. Birds began to take flight and search the waters for unsuspecting prey and as the air began to lift the healing salts began to gently blow.

Sharing of sensations I think create more awareness of whats around us that should never be missed. I wonder sometimes what your waking is like and what your world spins around you each morning. I hope it’s as beautiful as what I find and that your day is a most perfect symphony in which you can dance and sing away the moments that may seem uphill. Good morning and today is special no matter where you are. Feel it, love it and know it as the gift you’ve been given. I like to think the sea mirrors what’s inside of who I am, elemental in nature and beautiful in spirit, just like you.
