Amble On …

Deepdene, between Hamelin Bay and the Augusta lighthouse, the water worn rock is a fabulous site as you come around the bend on the Cape to Cape Track.



Our Peregrinations

Once you said we should go
out beyond the cliffs,
down to the beach
and restore our senses.

We strolled,
All the while rejoicing.

We dared to tread seaweed
al dente, or crisp.
Feasted on moist salt air,
and drank in the shimmer of the sea.

We skirted the edges of foamy wash,
then paddled,
retreating once again.

We laughed,
we traded soul.
Invited to each other,

That afternoon along the shore
we navigated love,
immersing, never retreating,
washed, found, and whole.

  10. Paul! This is BEAUTIFUL! My favorite part:

    “We laughed,
    we traded soul.
    Invited to each other,

    The more we live these words of yours, exchanging our true selves with one another — unafraid of hurt or allowing the mind to overthink, and instead just being…fully being…that is peace, surrender and experiencing…

    Thank you for sharing this. Big love to you! And keep putting out these beautiful pieces. Xx
