Sitting by the sea, hands smoothing the sand
With an airy caress of sun or moon
The blending of elements like a band
When it produces the most perfect tune.
A sense of humor creates a balance
Crucial when thoughts spiral out of control
There is no room for any allowance
Force your mind back to the center, be whole!
Stop the clacking of your brain and relax
Passivity should not cause a scrimmage
The good life examines all of our acts
Acceptance will not damage your image.
Feel the rhythm of water’s gentle tide
Let balance and harmony be your guide.
