Get Rid Of The Advertisements

STROLLING ONE DAY
 
Casting aside all urban density
polluted air and noisy traffic
I stroll along the ocean shore in serenity.

My soul-spirit settles into quietude
free of all unwholesome ingestion.
I begin to perceive reality with clearer clarity
feeling the upsurge of fresh rejuvenation.

I feel a longing to venture deeper
into the internalities of inner reality.
Ocean waves lapping at my feet,
a healthy dose of salt-tasting air
inviting me into the depths
of nature's inner sources.

As I tunnel deeper into my soul-forces
not wanting to be stranded
like drift wood stuck in river muck,
I see the earth whirling, circling
The sun appearing to slide across the blue
controlling the externalities of outer space
while moving time to another day.

I may lose my way but without a doubt
I will awaken to see a new day.
For what does the future proffer but more time
and hopefully another passing along this way.
