If life is art, brush all my days
in colors of the sea.
The symphonies of gull and wave
lull cares away from me.
When thought is caught in city haze,
when songs of hope grow faint,
the steady rhythm of the ocean
soothes my soul’s complaint.
Sea sights and sea sounds weather well,
like sunlight in the heart––
warming and uplifting every
sacred, inner part.
My son brought several friends down to spend the night with us and hang out in Santa Cruz this weekend. With his public accounting busy season just ending, he needed a beach fix! (As evidenced by my new poem, I strongly relate to this need.)
PS. My Relief Society lesson tomorrow is on The Creation. I am grateful for what is surely one of the Lord's most stirring accomplishments...the ocean!
