Ocean Spray~Haibun

Day 20 of OctPoWriMo. Prompt: Mountains or oceans.

Oh, how I love the ocean’s spray. It kisses my face as I near the vast and turbulent sea. It is a promise of the salty depths into which I fling my hot and tired body. Those healing waters that wash away the tension of life. The sound of the sea at full tide reaches out and masks the noise of society. The cars, and planes fly overhead but I can not hear them through the rhythmic advance and retreat of the watery heartbeat of our mother earth. This water of life is my home.

In the mountains high

Listen! The wind through the pines

Hear the waves of the sea.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
