The cliffs

IMG_5843  IMG_2074

Ireland, 2014

She walked the cliffs

High above the sea.

The path covered in the verdant green of summer

Dotted with gorse and heather

Ancient stones alluding to another life

Another world.

She inhaled the salty air

Letting it fill her lungs

And let the sound of waves against rock

Fill her ears.

The smells and sounds

Affecting her like no other.

She sat and surveyed the infinite expanse of blue-green in front of her

Watching as the white tipped waves raced toward the shore.

He was in her mind as she sat there

At what felt like the top of the world

Feet dangling over the side

Silent in all but thought

Watching the surf dance and froth.

She wished he was there

To join her in this quiet veneration

Of the sea.

She longed to sit close to him

Thigh to thigh

Her head upon his shoulder

His arm pulling her close

Into his side.

Absorbing the light, the sounds, the smells

Silently.

For with this kinship that they feel

With the sea

Words are not needed

When souls speak.

Bray Head

IMG_5847 IMG_5843 IMG_4030 IMG_2074

Bray Head, Ireland

A hike to the top of the world

Or so it seemed

Blue green expanse of sea spread out before me

I sat on the rocky hillside and enjoyed the silence

The vastness

How small I felt

But how thrilled to be so close

Sitting at the edge

Looking down at the rocks and swirling water below

I knew if I moved the wrong way

I could fall

But I moved ever closer to the edge

Wanting, somehow

To be part of it all

Not just a spectator

To become the element

Myself

Unexpected Treasures

I am fascinated by 

The roll of the tide

As it comes in

The blue-green waves

Churning up the sand

Underneath

Pushing forgotten shells

To the surface

And unexpected treasures

Are found

Cliffs of Moher

Cliffs of Moher

The siren waits

Long, dark hair whipping in the wind

Her song echoing

Amongst the Cliffs

Calling her lover

Back to her

I will see you

IMG_2083

I will see you

In every blue sky above me

And as I hike the rocky hillsides

Scattered with gorse

I will see you

As I look upon the mighty Atlantic

And as I photograph breathtaking architecture

I will feel you

In the soft, quiet of my evening

And as I slip into dreams of you

I will miss you.
