Zen Beach

My Wickaninnish Waves

Wave upon wave,
rolling in to shore,
wipes my mind clean.

***

Heart lifts in joy,
adjusts its rhythm
to the song of the sea.

***

Head in the sky,
feet on the earth :
at one with it all.

At Real Toads this morning, A Word With Laurie offers us the word: Zen, and asks the question: how do you achieve peace? Definitely my cup of tea, and make mine Oolong, please.

  10. I'm doing a little mountain hiking this weekend.... and it is glorious to be up high and look down. I also love watching the waves ripple into shore, one after the other... nature's meditation.

  16. Oh yes........a bit of heaven on earth.

    Zen--this morning it was sitting wrapped in a blanket watching meteors streak across the sky. Blissful silence, save the occasional leaf meeting the earth.......

  20. Beautiful in it's simplicity and honesty, Sherry. Yes... the waves soothe, don't they. So, too, I am learning, does bright desert sky, a cool breeze, the breath.

  25. Oh Sherry, I loved this so much.

    We have a saying which means we are firmly planted in reality:

    Kaki berpijak di bumi nyata

    Great one, Sherry as always.
