Pastels of blue and pink
in the sky
reflected in the water
that is almost perfectly still.
Gloden ochre cliffs
help frame the scene.
Just when I’m filled with bliss
regular, gently insistent waves
which signal the tide
roll to shore
amplifying the beauty and peace
that my thirsty soul wishes to store.
Superlatives are rendered meaningless.
All I have is ‘thank you, God’.
