To Cherish
Bubbling with its frothy froth to reach the sandy shore,
eternity will bring bubbly waves for ever, evermore.
Caressing our thoughts with gentle cares,
of how our environment will fare.

Imagining this scene from a distant past,
comforting us, never changing, willing it to last.
To last forever and a day for our kin yet to be,
this element we know to be our breathtaking sea.

From the Pacific Ocean to the Bering sea,
tiny waves ending on beaches for all of us to see.
Pleasuring our senses with touch and salty smell,
a portrait, for our entire weary minds to dwell.

A new frothy, bubbling, wave to caress our aching toes,
yet another and another in a continuous gracious flow.
Little grains of sand like diamonds in the sun,
clinging to our feet before our next step has begun.

Gentle sandy touches, adding to that frothy smell,
with gentle Seagull speech, asking us, to foretell.
To forecast our intentions to promise and to care,
Never to let up on our diligence, to keep safe and to share

To love and cherish what we see,
acting now for our thoughts to always be.
Mindful thoughts of gentle frothy waves,
of smell and touch to keep until our dying days.

Then, when new life's born to see,
what nature presents from its loving gracious seas.
Eternity of gentle frothy waves to caress our weary ways,
to have and to cherish to our very dying days.

The Auld Yin.
Author's Notes:
