“A Day At The Beach”
By Ashley O’Hare
There’s comfort in the noise.
The crashing waves ripple beneath my feet,
fending off the doubts in my mind;
demanding their retreat.
With every seagull squawk,
I’m forced back to the present moment.
There is no time for distractions-
no time to take stock
of my limitations.
Over time, I’ve learned to accept it.
I’ve grown fond of the sea;
of the time I am gifted
to let go and simply be.
