My Medicine: A poem

Posted on March 18, 2013



Taken by me, in The Florida Keys.

All senses tingling

the salt water plays on my lips

my hair drips as I come alive

my medication is this, so pure and clean

sand under, soft and calm

the waves are a lulliby, soothing and sweet

tendering caressing as the sun glisense down

running over golden brown

paradise won as God’s country comes into view

blinding rays dance in the smoldering heat

here is my medicine, so pure and simple

here my mind is free as salt water stings my lips
