A Poem Of The Sea That Saves Me.

I walked a path to the ocean today.  

My daughter ran ahead, into the waves

and became

electric. 

She threw fists into the air and screamed out her joy.

She kicked and jumped.

She spun and threw her head back,

thanking. 

My daughter.

Our daughter. 

In the middle of real life, of receiving and giving.

It was mesmerizing.

Alive. 

I will weep when I remember this. 

I will know that this was truth.
