A winter sea song


This is a little something I wrote over the winter of 2021, after returning to my hometown in New Jersey. It had been quite a tumultuous year, with the strike of the pandemic, the poor health of a family member, and a sprinkle of heartbreak. As always, I turned to the sea for advice – something about whipping winter air and the crashing of waves never ceases to point me back in the right direction.

Tonight I felt the wind blow until I felt whole. It blew through my heart, my pain, and my ego until nothing was left except for me.

I stood by the sea, wind all around, only to realize that I do not come here to be alone. I come here to be part of a bigger whole. I come here so that when tears fall from my cheeks, they go back to the sea.

I am not smaller than the ocean or bigger than my tears, I just am. I am comforted by the lull of the waves and I am held by the wind. I am covered in salt and made up of mostly water.

I am here, I am now, I am. 

PS… This little Diddy doesn’t have a title. Leave your ideas in the comments!! 🙂
