How I Long To Belong To The Sea

by

Suzanne Tyson

With arms outstretched, I dance on the shore to the rhythm of the sea.

My soul and senses exploding, imploding.

How I long to belong to the sea!



I step to the edge of the ocean floor. The mighty waters gushing to roar

with a voice of strength upon my ear. I know my loving God is near.

Up from the deep depths. Pulsing and breathing to tumble and rumble.

Cresting and peaking itís way to the shore. To return to itís home once more.



Restless and rounding, descending and ending to languish its self

to the earth. I stand in its wake, my heart it will take.

Swish! Wish!... Whoosh! Whispering my name, the waves will pound.

Resounding my name, to beckon me, to call me again, to belong to the sea.



With awe, I wait. Anticipate! Grains of sand shifting, stirring, sinking

beneath my feet, I stand and shake within itís quake. My heart leaps!

With joy! in the presence and essence of its clandestine power. It showers

me with love for my tired soul. It heals my heart and more.



The sky above flares, a fiery of red.

Time to retire, to relinquish the day.

I turn to return from whence I came

my heart and soul, my own to claim.



With arms outstretched, I dance on the shore to the rhythm of the sea.

My soul and senses exploding, imploding.

How I long to belong to the sea!
