A Thousand Other Worlds

[Oxnard, California — March 30, 2006 — Journal Entry (A poem)]


I’m sitting on

the beach, looking

out at the Pacific

Ocean.  The smell of

the salt lifts in

the air

The beauty is hard

to describe as a

collision of sensory

details calm me

softly.  Not a care

in the world

sits beside me

I merely be

Just an onlooker

at something magnificent

the birds hawk

and coo

a child plays

the ocean serenades

me with her soft

whisper ways

Underneath the water

lie a thousand other

worlds.  lucky to be watching this,

I coo
