Waves

I watch waves flow from here to distant shore
And wonder if they journey by design.
What freedom are they given to explore
As they break loose from sands where I'm confined?

When winds whip seas and walls of water climb
To reach the heights where gulls and egrets soar,
Are Earth and Heaven's borders redefined?
I watch the waves flow from here to distant shore.

I listen to the ocean's thunderous roar
And hear its rumblings echo through my mind.
As dreams escape from out of my guarded core,
I wonder if they journey by design.

My life stands eager to be redefined
As searching questions from my spirit pour.
As thoughts once bound are starting to unwind
What freedom are they given to explore?

As waters churn above the ocean's floor
And nothing stays where it was first assigned,
My longings stray from where they once were moored
As they break loose from sands where I'm confined.
