Seeing the Thunder

    Silence is good.
    She embraces and guides me
    Along a shore whose sand crunches
    In muted whisper beneath my feet.

    I gaze to my right and observe Pacific
    Breakers roil and tear with ferocity into the
    Smooth expanse of glass that stretches toward
    My infinity.

    Soundless, these noisy visions appear as thunder
    To my eyes.
    Offshore fog undulates precipitously in my direction,

    Wishing to join in my audience with her sister waves.
    I do not listen so do not hear.
    To see is, of itself, sufficient.
    My ears I have stopped; inner churning has forever ceased.

    Vision alone will guide me in the direction of an unknown
    That I no longer fear.
    Silence. I have chosen her ...
    She heals me.

    Beautiful words married to a beautiful picture. Silence is truly a thing of beauty; within each of us a perfect silence, it is our home.

    Greetings, TheSilence, Tec, Poppers and Glander:

    Good Sunday morning! Wishing all of you well and thanking you for your kind words. I reworked the prose into a loose sort of free verse and added water!

    Have a good day,

    There's just nothing better than sitting by the ocean feeling the sand on your feet and just soaking it all in it really does heal.

    As a child I spent many summers on the atlantic and i loved it and now I live again by the atlantic a special place always.

    Thanks for sharing the Atlantic. There are always two sides to a continent ...
