  1. I love that! It shows the constant motion of giving and taking, making decisions, compromises, but also the excursion towards new shores and the coming back with new insights. Your poem actually feels to me like a picture of the circle of life – birth and death, coming and going – reincarnation.

    1. Gosh! I’m so happy you felt all of that from it. Thank you so much Erika, I’m deeply touched by your kind words. Really glad you enjoyed it! Best wishes to you and I hope you have a good weekend. 🙂

  2. SSS = simply splendid and stunning… HL = huge like! 🙂

    1. Thank you Mélanie for such a wonderful and inspiring comment 🙂 I’m very happy to know you enjoyed it!
      My best wishes to you too and have a great weekend! Cheers!

  3. I see flexibility in your words of coming and going. The sea’s ebbing and flowing means constant change but also I see the natural consequences of actions and reactions. Smiles, Robin

      1. I appreciate your feeling this is wise. Thank you! I feel blessed with a windy day, soon to be raining and I remembered to bring my umbrella! Smiles back at you, too.

  4. I’m reminded of times when I want to ‘just come and go’ instead of allowing the ‘constant ebb and flow’ to resolve. Intentional focus is indeed a ‘habit’ of being. Lovely.

  5. Yes to all of the comments above – this is like a river, and one can easily see life like a river. But not necessarily life as a whole, linear notion – but the temporality of everyday moments. In other words, everything you ever do should flow in and out of itself like an undulating tide, and I think humans can tell (even if they repress this inkling) if they are living as a river or as a part of parched desert. Life should always have flow.
