the ocean spoke to me

as i sat by the bay
i could feel the ocean
breathing in and out
like an enormous
that spreads everywhere
with its flowing nature
i listened quietly
as it whispered
through its breathing
its words were intimate
and private
yet it was its presence 
and stillness
that really spoke to me

it calmed my troubles
and eased my turbulent mind

i wondered how it so effectively
communicated its essence to me
without actually speaking?

and i decided to do the same in my life.
