This poem is dedicated to all the Nurses, such as myself, who has to commit to third shift in the ER (Trauma)

Love and Hugs, Kemy


The sea is calling out to me

Adhere to listening to the soothing powers to be

The sandy grainy bed coated from its cool blanket in no rush to flee

The sounds of the gentle waves as it crawls upon land

Kissing the rock formation retreating as it remains to stand

Seagulls soaring, carried away by the distance wind, troubles behind they leave

Close one’s eyes, taste the salt of its embrace the mind can only perceive

The tranquility within the depths appears so vivid, its water frontier so majestic and blue

The weakening of its tyrannical powers, cleansing of its element, spinning in its current, our earthly just due

Coral hidden, however, there’s life under the sea, an entire world within its wisdom, souls anew

God pities babies, wade in water rebirth, you must now spiritually paddle your own canoe

Replenishing notions to conceive, waterfalls to believe, minds on a tidal wave to emotional receive

The sea, so vast what lies beneath, the profundity to survive, unattainable to believe

One foot in, and then the other

Knee deep, goosebumps smothered

Feet buoyant, no net to catch

Sinking lower, there goes my last breath

Watery cocoon for a life of coins, no wealth

The sea calling me, mermaids I have now met

Waking up, thrashing in the bathtub,  I realized I must have soundly slept
