Bountiful Beauty

Laying on the soft white sand
lulled by the sounds of the sea
skin kissed with hints of sun
as the day comes to a close.
Brilliant pinks
subduded purples
paint the evening sky
a flaming gold orb
lowers itself into the water.
Golden light
baths the land
shimmering on dancing waves
watching the seagulls soar and swoop
as evening is begun.
Awe inspiring
tears springing to mine eyes
resplendent in all it’s glory
nature’s bountiful beauty.

I Fought

As a young child
I stood upon the shore
staring across the waters
wondering
wishing
I knew what was on the other side.
As a teenager
I was told what a girl could do
should do
was expected to do
I wondered why the rules were so different.
As a young woman
I married a man
who did not love me
who controlled me
who dominated me
who damn near destroyed me.
I fought to get free
I fought to break the chains
I fought to reclaim my life
I fought once more 
for the wanderlust in my heart.
Now I am here
in the waning years of my life
once more upon the shore
ready to lay my weary bones down
to slow down
to remember
the travels I fought so hard for.
