Tranquility

There are spots upon the land
Where magic always grows
Beauty born by Nature's hand
Hidden deep to touch the soul

I'm blessed I'm proud to say
It's never the same place twice
A spot finds me every day
I smile, sigh and soak in the sights

And if I'm very lucky
Which I often am
I sooth my feet in water rocky
And simply know "I am."

One foot touching sand
moving may look
same.. but grains
of sand and toes
feet never
move sane
two times..
a tapestry
we see of
moving sAme
but each step
diffeRent
in Love's
fEat..:)
