Task 9 – Lock down challenge (I’ve taken the daily bit out)

Reflection

Isle of Wight Artist – Katie Hobbs 2020

The Sea

I hold my breath

and allow myself to free fall

into the depths of this

extraordinary place

of wisdom

falling deeply

into the ebb and flow

of existence

the unknown

such beauty and elegance

glimmers

an enchanted paradise

a boundless ocean

no beginning or ending

a deliverance

to a space of

unfathomable peace

and exquisite glory

the endless abundance

the powerful

life force

rising up

to greet the earth with

tremendous swell

and Mother Nature

with all her gracious

offerings

floats gently

on the tide

I breathe once more

I have arrived

  1. Michelle, I read your introduction piece and now this beautiful piece of poetry. Both pieces made me feel…. your honesty, your wish to be known for yourself, no hiding, to do something for yourself that feels true and ‘yours’.

    And this poem about the sea is stunning. I immediately sensed a kindred spirit in you. Someone who’s writing I intuitively understand.

    I’m so glad to have found your blog, and I’ll look forward to reading more of your work. All the best,
    Rachel 💜
