On the Beach of My Imagination


Here I am, alone
I hide from my own shadow
I dance, I play – I am alive
And I bask in the glow of setting sun
Sand pushed between my toes
And I can’t help but wonder
How many
How many
And could I possibly count them all
And the beauty of the moment
Streaks before my eyes
A glimmer of hope
My feet sink and the water rushes in
And I feel the movement
Of the world beneath me
It pushes away
Pushes away
And I feel like I am falling
But still I stand against the tide
Dripping wet, yet full of life
My heart is rushing
Rushing –
It longs to sleep within the tide
To brush against the rocks
Each one tells a story
I want to shape their beauty
To etch my memories
Across their edges
And I long
To push away
To push away
And stretch far away
Carried on the waves
The sky lit up like flame
It ripples across the waters
And lights the fire
Within my imagination.
