and vastness dwarfs
as I sit and breathe
the hearty air

sometimes I talk
and the waves listen

I too grew up on the coast in Ireland. The Atlantic energizes and grounds me. I feel at peace on the shore like nowhere else on Earth. I live in Cumbria now where I can reach the coast easily but not often enough. That will be my goal in 2020.
