Afternoon Sun

for the first time 
in seeming months
we sat at water’s edge
mesmerized by stillness
listening
to the gentle lap of waves
feeling the warmth
of afternoon sun
slowly melt our frozen souls

shadows passed
as geese honked overhead
laughing children scurried by

Ah…
I heard a voice within

at last,
there is hope again

    Sharing a beautiful poem today.
    Sitting on a beach sounds wonderful doesn’t it?
    Right now, we are in the deep freeze – with snow and ice and predictions of even lower temps and winds coming from the north.
    May we all be “on a beach” occasionally, in our memories, as we move through the winter months – one day at a time.
