4 january

on this beach we build a shelter

the waves sing us to sleep

the new day shines upon the horizon

 I turn to you

not as a winner

not as a hero in this revolution

but as one resolved

and dedicated

to the belief

that all we really need is the shelter of one another


  1. The shelter of another's love is the strongest...I am glad it is there...

  2. There is nothing like it. I think we picked up that habit and desire from our predecessors.

  3. Simple, charming and effective. Thank you for this gentle poem with which to start 2015!

    Whirling in the New Year

  4. I’m sorry for being so late to return your visit to my site. It’s been a rough few days. But so glad I made the effort. This one is a keeper and I thank you for sharing its gentle loving message.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
