At the Sea


The cure for anything is salt water
-- sweat, tears, or the sea. --
Isak Dinesen

Every rock and broken shell is turned and rounded
every jagged edge is soothed and smoothed
hard corners are softened
the silver-ness of the sun was like a fairytale
it filled me to overflowing
I breathed it in and let it soak down to my bones

I've felt better by crying
I've felt better by working
and this time
I let the sea cure me.

The sea calms me...heals me, too. Your photographs are soothing beauty.
