On The Beach

~ a poem

On the beach
Is where the elements meet
All four are in immediate reach
Yet to grasp them all is quite a feat

Where the water touches
The earth starts to sprawl
All within the sky’s clutches
But where does the fire enthrall?

As I walk on the sunbaked surface,
It is only near the ocean,
Under the breeze,
At the edge of my world,
That my feet can cool

As I stand here in the sand,
In the flow of the four,
As I embody this land,
And embark from this shore,

Here, I breathe a singular Truth, eyes on our star,
If only the Father and the Sun knew
If only I saw my steps as more than a scar
If only we seized that the FIRE is in you. ~
