1.6.2021 – sunny sunshine sounds

sunny sunshine sounds

world spins sunlight shifts
tides scour back and forth endless
everyday motion

Gravity.

Rotation of the Earth.

The moon.

The Sun.

They all come together and pull the ocean up and down the coastline twice a day.

Sitting still on the beach.

The water retreats and the water advances.

Sitting still.

Not moving.

And everything is in motion around you.

Just a little mental gymnastics, and you become the center of the universe and everything revolves around you.

Part of a series based on an afternoon spent at the beach on Hilton Head Island.

I wanted to see if I would be ‘inspired’ by what I saw, by what I heard, by what I smelled, by what I tasted, what I felt emotionally and what I felt tactilely.

Some turned out okay.

Some were too forced.

Some were just bad.

Some did involve some or all of those feelings.

As far as it goes, I guess I was inspired by by what I saw, by what I heard, by what I smelled, by what I tasted, what I felt emotionally and what I felt tactilely.
