Solitude

With toes in the sand, head in the clouds
thoughts float by as I stand around
Waves come close to shake my hand
their gentle touch helps me understand

    • Exactly, Sue! One of the beautiful, soothing places to visit when our minds need clearing! Much love and many blessings to you, too! I need to catch up on your blog. I’m not getting notifications and am so frustrated with WP right now! 🙂 Have a lovely week also! My hubby and I will be headed out on Thursday for a long wine country weekend and we’re both very ready for it…xoxo

  1. Beautiful words. Beautiful photograph. Lauren we live just a short drive from the ocean. It is lovely to refresh one’s spirit walking along the shore. Occasionally finding an exquisite shell or an interesting piece of drift wood. XX Virginia

    • Thanks so much, Virginia, and you’re lucky to live that close. We’re only about a 45 minute drive away, though, so it’s not too bad. There will always be something special about the ocean’s soothing symphony…xx

  2. Language… has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone.
