A million stars reflected on the sea of a million dreams,
a world of wishing and woe, wonder and Atlantic awe:
a place no person could ever entangle from their heart.
The water sings of your name as it rhapsodizes along the rocks
and shells of perfect surfing swells at the feet of a glorious, gushing moon.
Another gnarly night.
Anchored beneath a current of diamond lights as the sky flows from dusk to dawn,
the waves penetrate every fear I’ve ever known as if nothing matters.
Nothing but this. Nothing but my home of sweet celestial melodies
that hum of another starlit seashore midnight in my sand-spangled skin.
A gift of heaven and earth at the kiss of our enchanted oasis.
An oasis for the mind and heart.
