Summary

Every time I come home I feel this way. This time I decided to capture it in words.

I smell you before I see you
My nostrils filled with salty delight
My lungs breath deeper
Nowhere on earth
Your pulsing rhythm steadies my heart
Your soft padding cradling my steps
The surf a balm to my soul
Recharging and refilling my depleted stores
My feet pad along, sinking, as my legs lengthen
The big blue sky going on forever past the skyline
Seagulls screech off in the distance
I am almost humming I am so happy
Cool water splashes onto my ankles
A tiny crab scurries into his hole
I must walk under the fishing line
As a surfer waits for his perfect swell
I left this place, searching for adventure; and myself
A niche for me in the world
Confining and mundane, I thought you
I wished to travel the globe back and again
But as it is when we grow wise
I realize that I might have had it all the time
My heart belongs here
My spirit never left
Fill me up
So that I may come back to rest
