Brave Waves

After a transformational week at the inner leadership course last week I did an overnight stay by the sea in Sitges, where I had also began the week. It was healing and restorative to be near to the waves once again and I fell into a lovely deep sleep shortly after having written the following lines.

Here is the link if you would like to watch the filmed version of my poem :

Sea Sent Live Version

 

Sea Sent

I need the vast horizon, the spirit of wild wave

I need the curling gusts of tide, the energy displayed

I need the sensuality of spacious, free expression

The push and pull polarity of seaside decompression

I need the laid-back scent of salt

This harbour holds my yearning

I need to breathe, accept my faults

Compassion is my learning

I need the sea inside of me

Outside of me, around me

It’s spirit leaps with pride in me

It glides in me and grounds me

  1. Lovely poem, Sam. I liked lines 3 and 4 the most, the flow, the rhymes, the alliteration, the spot-on sentiment. I’m not much for laying on or playing on the beach, but I love the calming rush and retreat of waves, the tangy salt smell of the ocean. 🙂
