Falling over myself

I am at that moment
The wave sucks back in,
Falling over itself
As it bubbles and hisses
Through pebbles.
I've sat so many times
Looking into this hiss,
Always some part of me
Longing slightly
For the wave
to have come further.
Just that tiny bit further.
To have rested
before its own undertow
Sucked it back in.

The ache familiar
The draw remembered
The passing of moments
Releasing of tears
Breath deep
Arms full
The dance of it's moving
The cool of it's air
The Freeing
The me-ing
The silence.
The spacing between
Me and the world
It and my soft spots
Work and my innocence
Dreams and their end
A charm
And it's incense

I miss it.

My littlest man is wandering around the house in a Batman t-shirt, a Superman cape and playing constantly with his sing-song whistling, steam blowing Thomas The Tank Engine...a very happy three year old indeed!

Still, to this moment in my life, I associate the Thomas song with the extra half hour-half asleep in bed-that I used to relish when our eldest was still so little...so I'm a happy thirty-nine year old too!

Life is never what I expect! My love is with those that don't love me back, my patience is with those that drive me the most demented, and my prayers are with our niece for as swift a turn for the better as there was for the worse...If you feel like sending prayers or healing to our next grand niece/nephew, due 25th Dec, the are gratefully received.
