|I was raised on the coast of Virginia and the ocean holds a special place in my life. I went there when I was troubled and it was as if the tides washed everything away with the soothing sounds of the waves. I can relate to this. Wonderful write!

|A time at a lonely beach can be very refreshing. Wish I could get to in Nova Scotia shore. All we have here is dirty sand with whatever washed up lately.

|The seascape never grows old and poetic thoughts flourish, especially this time of year it seems. I especially took pleasure in the last four lines.
P.S. I love your website.

You really capture that feeling of majesty one feels at the beach...the renewal and new beginnings. Well done.

|You don't see the sea, you feel it within, it is hitting your soul, as if the waves speak to you right in to the depth of your soul. As if when the tide comes crashing in you give it your burdens as it takes them back with the tide and drowns them. Perfectly constructed.|

|I bask in the solitude of nature also, and how beautiful the way you capture it in your poetry. I especially love the final stanza of this poem!

|Ah so true. The beach is a special place. Mountain dust beneath your feet, crunchy sand...|

|I live a distance from the ocean and do not go there as often as I should, but do understand the sense of peace and relaxation one... you in particular, Anna, my friend, feels when warm in your woollen coat with the heat of your breath further warming your cheeks you sit watching the never ending movement of waves and water.
Your friend, Mark

|I think you have captured an aspect of the ocean that keeps people going back there: "Exposed now, heart and soul naked" That so fully describes how the vast openness of the ocean shore frees us. It has that affect on people. You said it in those words. Great ~~ Diana|
