Sunlight Dance | An Ode To The Changing of Seasons
As winter reaches its end, days once again begin to lengthen, and I feel the sun of renewal upon my face.
On this morning the line-up is bare, not unlike the trees stripped of their glorious leaves.
Winter’s final swell is small, clean, warm, and spacious.
It’s a humble farewell, from an oftentimes raw and unforgiving stage in nature’s cyclical routine.
As I watch the sunlight dance upon the ocean’s surface like countless gems, I feel alive.
I’m present, my mind is silent, I feel pure.
Deeply inhaling, I feel the crisp air enter my nostrils and fill my lungs.
I exhale, in gratitude for another morning spent playing in the sea.
The deep blues and emerald green tones of the water, utterances of the warmer seasons to come.
In the ocean I witness another winter come to pass, as I continue to ride the waves of perpetual change.
