It’s Lexington Poetry Month!  Go to lexpomo.com for a fresh batch of poems each day during the month of June. I am participating for the second time and I am blown away by these wonderful writers. Please visit the LexPoMo site and show them some love.

This is my contribution for today:

Split Open

Standing at the edge of ocean and sand
The heft of this world fades into the
Peace of feeling small.

I am split open by the single-mindedness of the sea.
Waves approach and retreat,
Filling and emptying as
The moon commands.

How do I put my life in its wake?
To accept gravity,
To breathe in and breathe out,
To take comfort in the moon?
