I believe in the healing power of salt water
I slept on the beach hoping it would clear my head
but my dreams were filled with images
that would have given Hieronymus Bosch pause
garden of earthly delight
I had no choice but to paddle out
and hope that
would clear my mind
I paddled outside
and was suddenly swept out to sea
among humongous waves
My only chance was to catch a wave and try to make it back to land
fortunately I was on a mat!
I snagged one of the larger ones and surfed for hours continuously sliding toward what I hoped would be the shore and safety.When I finally reached shore I found myself, suprisingly enough,back home in SoCal.
