Sea Green Raindrops

The sky is a dim gray, as the raindrops begin to fall. I’m staring out across the ocean, watching the rain mix into the sea. Everything around me seems to be moving in slow motion. I am concentrating on my breath, synchronizing it with the crashing of the waves against the shore. The world seems to stop, just for a single heartbeat.

A Seagull’s cry breaks my moment of meditation. I watch as the bird flies so beautifully over the sea. For a while, I imagine myself living as free as this bird. Flying away, leaving any troubles behind. Making the beach my home, the ocean my playground. Then, I turn around, and slowly walk back up the beach; heading back towards my reality.

  1. I miss the beach! But such truth. Sometimes all we need is a few moments of being out of our reality to make us ready to go back to it. The beach always did that for me. Still does when I go. Sadly now I live 2 hours away from it. But it’s just makes the times there more precious.

    1. Your comment reminded me of the line by Robert Frost, that I repeat in my head sometimes.

      β€œThe woods are lovely, dark and deep.
      But I have promises to keep,
      And miles to go before I sleep,
      And miles to go before I sleep. β€œ
      -Robert Frost
