Diving in the Halocline

On the border of the ocean

there is a cave filled with light

calling to my spirit

to put things right

A few peccadilloes

hardly noticeable in my life

living without thinking

now causing strife

Now in the ocean

with waves of salt

actions weighed both good and bad

some not my fault

Entering into the cave

absorbing the salubrious fire

healing occurs immediately

spirit rising higher

Exiting the cave

the salt water turns to clear

entering a paradise

trees and birds are near

Reentering the world

embraced with love

living life in service to others

a gift from above

  1. I suppose those peccadilloes can add up.
    I feel like you are combining epiphany with new year’s resolution, and that can be a powerful bond. I like it. I like it a lot.

    • Thank you. Yes, I am combining epiphany with resolutions for the new year. I also am learning new words from the word prompts of the day. Some of the new words are interesting. Happy New Year! Have a wonderful day!
