Sitting on a beach under the palm trees,

Just after sunset,

A slight breeze catches my hair- playing with it softly-

Moonlight is trying to shine through the gathering clouds 

My barefeet- nestled comfortably in the sand-

I feel warm rain drops beginning to fall, gently.

My first thought- take cover-

but I resist- 

enjoying the scent of the ocean

Letting go of thought and embracing being -

I  lean back, close my eyes, and let the rain fall on my face,

with droplets running down my chin.

The rain holds me in a timeless embrace

My hair turns to ringlets- my wet clothes cling to my body.

Peacefully, I stand, stretch, and turn slowly toward home.


Life Coach and Author Sheri Kaye Hoff
