Lavender Waves

At the Oregon coast with girlfriends. We have sparsely seen each other for the passed seven years. Reviving our “Bella Beach” formerly annual weekend. I have never seen the ocean this color. It is staying with me. Here is the poem.

The golden gummie melts into sea

A sea of lavender colored waves

Why is ocean presenting lavender?

Is it Diona

our long passes friend for whom 

we tossed love-blessed stones into that sea that sea tonight turned purple?

And the agates at our feet

that peak our minds,

soften our hearts

with Diona’s waves

to help us expel angst and worry,

to girl talk it all out

clearing space 

to soak in those lilac ocean ions,

breathing in the salt clear air,

bringing back our silly, young selves

Wrapped in our wiser croning selves.

We are whole

We are grateful,

We are love.
