Poem: “Full Circle”


Full Circle

The waves seem to beckon to me
                  as I lie in the glistening sand
                  and ponder the Immortal Hand
                  that created all I see.
I am drawn, deeply, to the easy
                  rhythm of the waves striking land
                  and pulling back from where I stand
                  looking longingly out to sea.
The waves come forth, draw back again,
                  a natural give and take
                  that doesn’t go against the grain.
Instead, it calls out to me,
                  calls me back, calls me back
                  to complete the circle perfected by love.
