I find peace where the skies and the seas meet
With the last rays of the sun coming from beyond
The silhouettes of ships from afar –
The pure form of being.
The rust and chapped paint no longer visible
And the only thing I see is them being ships.
As darkness slowly defines the surroundings
I sit on the ledge by the bay
Savoring the hues of dusk as the palm trees lose their color.
Ever since, the setting sun has inspired emotions in humankind
With a promise of acceptance – everything that begins will end;
And everything that ends will begin again.
The mind is calm and the heart is still
With the day’s lesson – let go.
Let go and face tomorrow.
