I saw the waves, the line of water,
Nearing the shores, small in the distance,
Yet majestic in pose, and grand in stature,
The sea – an expanse of dusty cyan blue,
In the light of the brilliant afternoon sky,
The trees – waving in the marine breeze,
Affording me shade from a burning sun,
I look in awe at the Creation,
Before me the ocean of opportunity,
Behind me a meandering river of purpose,
Yet where I stand I am a creature of both,
In this small land that separates both,
Where I am ;
And the voyager.
With yesterday behind me,
Today with me,
And the future in front of me,
But a small speck in the infinite tapestry;
And of action.
Moving now, steadfast and with purpose,
In the name of the Good.
