On Vacation

The wind and
surf and
sand and
sea,
like a glorious
symphony,
collide at
eventide
to be
the catalyst
that sets
us free
temporarily...

From all that
threatens
sanity.
The sweetness
and the light
we see
sets us
free
so we
with certain
aimless, shameless
glee
can sing a song
just you
and me.

Tomorrow
we will wake
and be
renewed and
inexplicably
midst our
duties still
be free
to live
and love
creatively.

So thank you
wind and surf
and sand
and sea!

Your words capture why I am so drawn to the sand and the water and love the sound of the surf and waves washing over and tumbling thoughts and dreams and memories.

Exquisite image to accompany such deep, meaningful words. You MUST use this technique again and again. Excellent.

Thanks Jacob.

"And it's never complete without some light shining by your side.The same light that tells you to go on every day.

Ah... if you could hear my voice right now, when I say word by word, reciting the poem with the heart ripping as much emotion?
Ah... ask for the wind and maybe you can feel this sweet moment.A moment of happiness when you see beauty in everywhere.

So that, don't think about tomorrow, enjoy the wind, surf, sand and the wonderful sea, 'cause they will be forever inside your heart."

Dear friend,
You have a blessed talent, thanks so much for bringing this positive and beautiful feeling for our hearts!
Léia :)
