at the edge of the ocean

I’ll sleep better
with the coming waves
hushing my mind
not a lingering thought
left behind
with the stars above
guiding my eyes
to the ribbon of light
I’ll follow the moon tonight
with the salty air
filling my lungs
the worldly scent
cleansing my soul
with the ocean bubbles
caressing my skin
releasing the tension
indenting the sand
with my body’s impression
yes I’ll sleep
at the edge of the ocean
where I won’t
drown as I dream
and I’ll wake
in the warmth
of the morning sun
with a clear view
of the pink sky
and the horizon
refreshed
with the strength
to swim again
