Angels in the Surf

Rough Waters
Rough Waters

I drive by the beach to be consoled by mother nature

to see her beauty

and to feel her rhythm of life

I am sad to see lights litter the landscape

flashing an emergency

for a soul

who thought he could become one with the waves

the currents were strong

and they ripped him out to sea

it was swift

and it was clean

not too much to think about

from wence he came he returned

and the boats searched till darkness


Morning arises and he has not been found

I pray for his soul

I pray for those he left behind

I pray he understands heaven


In a moment – any moment

there are choices to be made

we live in a life with free will

I’m just not sure that we all understand the significance of tiny moments

seemingly innocuous decisions that can alter a life –

end a life


As I walk on in my journey here

I pray to be aware of all moments

to be present in my life and to notice the really important times.


I walked up to the beach to take photos of the rough surf that claimed this man’s life to include in this post.  I did have a little fear because his body had not yet been found.  The beach was deserted, except for a woman walking with her toddler who asked me to take their photo.

When I got home and looked at the photos, I noticed little lights in the surf in one of the pictures.  I zoomed in and there were so many.

I couldn’t imagine what they were…specks on the camera lens…?  The sun was not out so I didn’t think it was a reflection of the sun.  So I zoomed in again on what appeared to be the largest one….

An Angel

And I saw an angel!!!  I am so utterly full of joy!

I was afraid to go to the beach for fear that I might see the poor man’s body, but I went and I got to see his soul.  I believe this is a miracle.  And it once again shows me that I should not live in fear…love is where I want to come from.

come to take him home

tell him he is safe

he is loved

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.
