Open One Ocean

Screams at an azure ocean bounce back in waves to me. Egos spill over with frustration of wants never meant to be. Let go of self-absorption awake in epiphany. Rise above the commotion reach a new reality. Oneness is revelation life's persistent mystery. Droplets see some solution while water moves consciously. Drops rush and roll in motion as currents of harmony. Waves find inner direction melodies of reverie. Fragile in nascent notion bound by fearing fates are we. Wishes seem a mystic potion from which we will not be free. Open to one grand mastery droplets of the human sea. 12/2/19

Oh Greg, this is a masterpiece of inspiration! I could not pick out one line to highlight as every one of them is a gem in itself! The ocean is a beautiful metaphor of oneness for all humanity - all mixed up in waves and tides! This is a fav for me. Congratulations on your win my friend.
