Oh that I could be one

with the ocean

and the air,

running free

over hills,

down valleys,

breathing in the sharp salty sting,

where the sea meets the shore,

then flying with it

over the continents,

across the islands,

singing and laughing,

crying and howling,

with the pleasure and pain

of it all….


Oh that we could be one,

mind, body and spirit,

connected, no more than connected,

exuberant and free,

that I could catch your hearts beat,

until my heart was your heart,

my soul, your soul,

my mind, your mind,

wrapped in a glorious whole

of love and life

in fullness….


I long for a lightness of being,

not disconnected from the pain

of the world,

but knowing that

this too will pass,

seeking for wholeness,

for peace in the darkness,

for healing beyond perfections

seductive grasp….


there is more

always more…



About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
