Let Waves Come In

Let waves come in
And wash away 
The sadness from your soul,
And salt winds comb
The world-dust from your hair;
Renew your jaded sight 
And find
The wonder everywhere.

  1. I'm on top of a mountain in Puerto Rico w/ my big bro but when I say I want to go to the beach, down, down, down we go...to let the salt wind blow the world dust from my hair.

  4. I often need the world-dust blown from my hair, but the last line is even better. Beautiful, Janie! I hope you are well.

  5. I am well, yes, though sometimes a trip to the beach is a much-needed retreat in order to marshal perspective.
