in this land of paradise
i can breathe again
palms sway in the wind
ocean air cleanses my soul
as the seagulls fly overhead
i can see freedom up ahead
its in the flowers and trees
calling me out of this slumber
the sand softens my skin
as i walk along the beach
softens my heart as i let
the waves crash over me
i can see freedom up ahead

We spends summers near the ocean and I can really relate to this poem! Yes, freedom!

living as i do now on the pacific coast,, it makes me ever so homesick for the calm serenity of the atlantic beaches... you made my heart skip a beat with this.. it was ever so lovely.......

Sigh. Taking a break is such a good thing, and you captured it so well here. Nice, very nice.

Sounds like somewhere I'd love to be right now....Newport Beach, or the Santa Monica Pier.

Being immersed in nature is definitely a great place to be for the body and soul!
