Wave Farewell

Crystal grains between my toes
When will we meet again?
Who knows?

Fingers reaching from your flows
Ankles deep in your Zen
Time slows

Beg me stay within your crash
Foaming pleas, salty tears
Mist blows

Time to go, but I’ll be back
May be days, may be years
Or so

You’re never far from my soul
When chaos fills rigid days
I know

Dreams of comfort make me whole
Drift on your sunset rays
Float low

Now I take your windswept leave
Bid farewell to your shore

Gift of shell you bribe and cleave
Makes me miss you still more

Today is Day 30, the final day of the NaPoWriMo challenge to write 30 poems in 30 days. Appropriately, today’s write a poem of farewell. This one was inspired by the photo banner of my blog, Retirement Legs. It is an actual photo of me saying good bye to my Mexico beach.
