Prompt words: Ethereal, placid, meander, forget, silver


white foamy waves dash toward shore, strains of my life

nothing ethereal about them on their approach

angry waves morph to placid waters
as they ease upon the sand

mesmerized I sit with eyes closed, meandering thoughts

lost in the language of the surf – a presence greater than I

the twinkling shimmering silver on the ocean’s surface a shifting changing wonder

an ever present reminder that
my ails is but a speck in this universe

no planets revolve around me
