tranquility


There was no time schedule to adhere to
No place that we had to be next
It was just the two of us
Together in the moment
Soaking in the beauty of nature
Listening to the ocean sing us a song
And feeling the warmth of the sun shine down

Tranquility washed over me
As we sat on the cool sand
Close to one another
Each sharing our story, and
Absorbing the peace that comes with silence
We sat there for awhile
You and I

We had the opportunity to just be
In the moment
Exactly as we are
No expectations, no agenda
Just two individuals showing up as themselves
Feeling comfortable with who they are
Breathing in the beauty around them

In this chaotic world
It is these moments that ground us
Awaken our spirit
Illuminate our soul and give us strength
For all the unknown that lies ahead
It is a gift to be given these moments
And a blessing to feel the wisdom they hold
