I am the waves of the sea,
The strongest, tallest trees.
I am the sand that holds the soles of your feet.
You are the cry of the birds,
The sound of the wind through the forest ceiling.
You’re like a taste of winter, in the middle of the July.
You are the ways the dirt gets between my toes.
We are the warmth of the sun,
After months of rain.
The bass of a deep breath in our lungs.
Together, it’s the feeling of climbing the tallest mountain peak, to pause in awe at the view below.
To feel small in such an endless Universe.
We are small, and our hearts, big.
Let it guide me back to you.
