    I love this. Reminds me of Job 38:8-11, “Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb, when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness, when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place, when I said, “This far you may come and no farther, here is where our proud waves halt?” As you said “Wisdom speaks.”

  6. <smile> A beach, open to the vast ocean, is among nature’s noisiest places. The wind, the waves, the gull’s cries.

    Somehow, it is not at all ironic that beaches are among the places I find peace most easily.

    I listen there, I think, more to my noisy insides than all the racket outside which usually holds my attention. And that’s not ironic, either.

    Maybe because I discover the racket inside is just a series of waves crashing up on the shore of my being. And, realising that, the internal noise becomes a susurrus, a calming rhythm, just like the waves crashing on the beach.

    <chuckle> But you said all that and more with just 17 syllables on three lines. So, kudos to you.

    Lovely response to the challenge. Thank you.

      Thank-you, Patrick. I feel the same way. When the rhythmic sound of waves splash through my senses, I am most at peace. I’ve held onto a dream that maybe one day my destiny will include a home by the water, as in my early childhood, but I am at peace instead, with a panoramic skyscape that flows by in surprising beauty, entertaining my imagination. Thanks for sharing your feelings. ❤
