• To Be

One of my favorite things about the ocean
Is that it looks so content and delighted
To be the ocean.

Never wanting to be something else
Never wanting to be somebody else
Just so happy to “be”.

I want to be like the ocean:
Totally focused on my Purpose
Bringing joy to others
Providing sustenance, harboring secrets
Wise beyond understanding
Perfect beyond human creating
Born to be what it is
Born, to simply be.

Never a wave like another
Recipient and maker of rain
Providing entertainment and opportunities
Serious and happy
Sad and dangerous
So much to so many
And yet, simply “being”.
