An Oasis of beauty

by - May 31, 2017


I've been away from the ocean for far too long now that my feet are craving the shorelines. 

Instead, 
I find myself grabbing hold of the dry earth with my toes.

Wandering through an oasis of beauty, smelling orchids, photographing clay stepping stones & getting lost on a wave of music notes from the songs coming from the palms. 

I grow wild out here.
Untouched.
My heart soars.

I'm there, 
still, 
listening.

As I bite into a mango, the juices run down my thumb
then to my wrist
at the time, I was distracted 
the sun
 perfectly aligned with a milky-face, rosy cheeked hibiscus.

Beads of the early showers still lingered on its' delicate petals

Transparent 

almost.

  1. So incredible! It looks like such an amazing little hideaway. Beautiful writing as well. I find myself craving the ocean as well but when I'm in nature by body is happy to connect to the world around me.

  3. Louann, what a great place, it's a very historical place and the colors of the flowers are beyond beautiful, I don't think I have the words for them... I too love the ocean, I live near a few but I don't get to it nearly often enough... this summer I plan to get out more often xox
