Wide Open Spaces

Wide Open Spaces

Ever crave those open spaces?
Where there’s no left, right or center,
Life just goes on, seemingly forever
Where the earth meets the ocean but it never really stops
Where your mind gets a breather
But no movement is enough
As your feet embrace the earth
Where you run, spin, and dance around.
Your breath is deep, fragmented with sound

You can see the horizon, far beyond the shore
And your fingers linger, everything feels new
Across the water’s edge, the sun shines through
Time is not an issue,
Time is held with grace
Your eyes are wide open, breathing in the space

Deep into the sand, you feel a calm within,
The salt on your lips,
Tastes like freedom for your skin.
As your role around laughing, there is no better healing
Your eyes unfold a canvas,
That is painted by feeling

Those wide open space, damn they do you good. They could last forever, if only they could.
