a poem for today

the prodigiousness of the pacific
transcends my thoughts
into a spacious peace,
lavished in the understanding
of my finiteness.

as the waves rise
to touch the sky
the reflection from the rays
are as blinding as 
a mirror holding hands
with the sun.

mighty and slowly
she descends,
creeping and stretching
further and further to quench
the dry, thirsty grains of sand.

with each breath
i drink in the richness
of the salty breeze
and allow the winds
to gently undo 
the knots in my mind.
