For some reason I decided not to write.
There wasn't anything different about the day
or the air.
It was an intentional decision
Poignant and from the heart.
And I decided not to post.
Many eyes were upon me and I responded
To nothing no one and
Very intentional indeed.
I parted a farewell
A very fond farewell.
It wasn't that I couldn't write.
I knew there were words forming in my head.
I just simply chose to not put them upon the paper.
I walked alongside the ocean
And I heard the screams
Telling me to toss them in
Everyone of them
And I silently listened
To the roar and the pounding surf
And I obeyed to the christening of the folds
And the panting of the water.
As it beckoned me.
I thought at that moment I would toss in the words
and I would never hear from them again.
And peace enveloped my soul.
Another season has passed
And I am calling upon the words
As I so keenly need to listen
and hear them chant once more.
What I thought I had lost
Has now remained.
And I must tune my ear to the cry once again
The pounding of the surf
The sand beneath my feet.
Nothingness again is calling to me
