The Perfect Wave

February 4, 2017 life

With much gratitude
to Venerable Amy Miller

Life can feel
like an angry sea,
wave upon wave
throwing us onward,
across its roiling surface.

And what if we could meet each wave
as would a happy surfer,
greeting it as the perfect wave,
offering the ride of a lifetime?

What would we balance on,
on the surfboard of our dreams,
if not the openness of our hearts,
and the fearless intention
of our minds and spirits?
