castle in the sky? cottage by the sea?
a castle sat, built of stone and made to last
when perched on a chair by a window
we could look out and see forever….
Looking down we saw the town around
and people going about their daily lives
me, sometimes you, and even we two
could sit for hours and enjoy the view
But what was there for us to do
when not with you, I sat alone
sitting, staring, but not sharing
Are the people below any different
as the go about, do they look up and wonder
what we are doing up here high in the sky
the coming home is always such s joy
we seem our home. nestled there,
with the water, hills and valleys
as for as the eye can see
We get to hear the water grumble when it storms
and see the clouds roll in to turn the sky
from blue to gray
Our time is measured by the natural
flow of morning light to end of day.
We know we are not alone,
we see the cars drive by
even the odd hiker will stop to say “hi..”
Yet, we often wonder,
would life be different if we were not by the sea…
Guess what… we all need food to nourish our bodies, and each and every one of us, has our own food preferences. The same applies to our spiritual needs, we are all wanting to find, love, peace, and tranquility in our days/nights. We each need to travel our own paths to towards this goal. But what is the common in thread in all of us, big, small, tall, short, whatever, is the love we give ourselves.
