I just feel sad

Day 166

I wish I could hear waves crashing right now.

On sandy shores, in the dark.

Salty water teeming with life.

I need to be held,

rocked to sleep by something bigger than myself.

I need a reminder,

of the rhythm.

The pulsing heartbeat of our gentle mother.

We’ve strayed too far,

and it is lonely here.

Hold me Mama.


Thank you for listening,

  1. SS and I spend a lot of time listening to the waves we hear in our big seashells, collected by my Grandmother in Florida. Sometimes I believe so strongly that it truly is a magic echo of these beings’ home. And sometimes it makes me long for it so, feeling their homesickness.

    • Hides, you always get it. You always know what to say. you’re a gift. To me, and to the world. Your heart is as big as the sea. Wish we were having tea!! Love you sooooo much!

    • I’ve read this comment bunches of times Hides, because yes! That’s it! We’re feeling the homesickness of millions. What you said here is beautiful, thank you.
