Summer is here once again.
The breeze is warm,
I smell salt on the wind.
The same sandy beach between my toes,
The same waters I learned to swim.
Sun burn on my nose,
To the Ocean I dive in.
I submerse myself in the waters of the Atlantic
Warmer than the West Coast Thankfully
Cold, I simply cannot handle it!
Further out I paddle faithfully,
For my mother ocean to keep me sane,
this is my therapy,
to soothe this migraine.
This place gives me energy,
a weakness with a name.
Pleasure Island, NC.
A place hidden with fortunes
and undiscovered fame.
Never could I stray from the ocean
my passions would never be fulfilled
and I would never be the same.
Dedicated to my Dad on Father's Day 2013
The man who introduced me to the ocean and educated me about it and gave me reason to love appreciate and respect it.

I sit on the sand dunes, lost in my thoughts, as the summer breeze swipes my face, freeing my hair....the salt air makes my inner-self come alive, as the ocean waves offer a private showing, reminding me of the power they own. A seagull flies overhead, as it speaks to me oh so gently, and a voice without a face commands me to"Relax and Feel Peace"......I feel a connection to God, as none other I've known, and all my worries and fears I once pondered, now seem trivial and unimportant.

as i stear deeply into your eyes, i begin to drown.
your mind is open, heart is deep, your love is wet.
beautiful as the ocean sunset reflecting the waters.
the satisfaction knowing the limits i can go with you are none.
for that no telling how long this journery may last.
as i get ready to set sail, i grab upon your hand to ensure your at comfort.
sailling from late evening all through the night.
stars shining that keeps the sky lite up while your reaching up to the angels.
you begin to scream seductively as the boat rocks gently a steady movement.
no waves has yet to arrive, the ride has only began.
slow motion slow pace but oh so passionately.
you ask if ill deep sea dive, with no hesitation I go head first.
enjoying the sensory, heaven down below.
hell is above, our sins are sexual, the love is forgettable.
our bodies moving more then ever before, the waves are approaching.
as I aboard, drop the anchor you start to climax this ocean aint never felt so good.
im in you, you in the moment as the night is falling.
the sun is rising our sexual peaks are arriving.
I hold you close and look deep into your eyes once more.
as I say your love was the ocean, it was open, it was deep it was wet.
it was something to remember.

I would cry a river to be away from despear,
I would drink an ocean to have the aches i feel disappear.
I would reel in the moon to have the shackles removed from my feet,
And their is no mountain i wouldn't climb to stop his grinding of my teeth.
I'd walk around the world to hear the noises stop,
I'm prepared to eat the eyes of an eagle to prevent my heart attack.
Or rob a bank , or touch the sun, or cut a star in two,
I'd rather burn in fire than stay this way with you.
I would tour the ocean floors, tear my heart out of my chest,
Take a bullet to my head, Or drill a whole through my left breast.
If it would take away the turmoil, and wash the mud from my brain
And cleanse my heart of impurities, like a treasure washed clean by rain.
Or if it would shine the sun, that would in turn warm my heart,
And melt away this icebox, that turned me cold and torn apart.
I'm desperate to erase the memories, of hurt and loveless times,
Of empty dreams and promises, of things that were never mine.
Just tel me what to, no matter how impossible it may seem,
I just want this feeling to be over, I want the reality of my lifelong dream.

me and the sea,
on a nice day.
The open sea,
see its beauty,
I'm so happy,
your here always.

Rush forward to greet the shore-bound partner
Send away to hide in the sea
Come back, come back to the sunny altar
Away from the darkness and smothering algae.
Sucked in where underwater, a world moves along
Through death and life and blackness too
Down deep, where there lives a fatal throng.
That simmers in the profound blue.

Hand in hand
walk along the beach
Calming sounds of the ocean
feel that zephyr breeze
Secure n Content
Mind is at ease
Cant stop smiling
never felt like this before
In heavenly bliss
as we lay upon the shore
The scent of his cologne
His gentle caress
Sweet n tender kisses
Head rested against his chest
He stimulates my mind
Could it be that my heart has
A moment in paradise
It all seems so surreal
Perfect moments like these,
are the ones that truly suffice
This may be the beginning
of something beautifully real
The union of two souls
That were meant to congeal.

Thank you for my daughter’s laughter
she reminds me there is joy to be found everywhere
thank you for arms that embrace
life’s yearning to connect
thank you for dreams
the ones we follow
and the ones we dance with
Thank you for music
the kind that cracks you open
then puts you back together again
thank you for the ink of our memories
so that we may write
our own beauty
thank you for the sky
a window wide open
calling you in
thank you for the ocean
its vastness humbling
waves that whisper
let go… let go…
thank you for the wind
that partners with the trees
for a soulful ballet
thank you for the rain
washing away the dust
and tampering our fires
thank you for springs vibrant bloom
a canopy of magic and renewal
thank you for summers swell
thick sweet honey humming with heat
thank you for autumns release
unfurling itself against a palette of color
thank you for winters deep sleep
and the stillness of snow
thank you for all the darkness
and the losses
for without them
all of this
would not be

Know how her eyes are ocean blue,
Aroma of ocean mist,
Supple lips I often suffer to
Subtle waves of emotion
You crave the with holding
Everything in your sea,
Not drowning you see,
Go figure you'll be
Ecstatic to see
Laughter in an ocean breeze.
Don't be scared of deceit
I'll tame the waters beneath
No regret for the peace,
Got to cherish my plea,
Everything that you want
Remember I've got it..... believe.

And when the time had come
Back to the earth from which she came
Comforted by her love
Death doesn't seem so grave
Even though she is not here
Follow the sound of the ocean
God is with her .......
Here, there and everywhere

OH CALM SEA YOU ARE ME
Oh calm sea you are me
Gulping the lights around, bearing the vessels many
With turmoil abound within yet serenity atop
Oh calm sea you are me
Holding the bridge deeply engraved on your bosom
With Bustling lights around trying to chide you day and night
Yet you gaze and gaze mortals without a sigh
Oh calm sea you are me
Calm waves that you make only I can see
Enormity that you hold within, well I can relate to thee
Rubbing the shores in the hours wee
Oh calm sea you are me !!
