Ponto Beach, Encinitas, CA

Don’t be fooled by the obvious wave
dressed in a foamy white gown,
riding high and roaring loud,
crashing into the rocky shore.

Gaze into the distance with wonder
at the origin point,
where subtle urges begin
to form the next great wave.

Here is the birthing ground
where undulating rhythms
rise up and begin their journey
to shoreline majesty.

Are you willing to let go
of your individual form
with all its splendor and roar?
Let the ocean still you; shape you.

Knowing this ocean universe
longs to birth beauty.
