02 Dec Dancing Barefoot at the Beach
Today we are feeling inspired by the continual creativity of Rebekah Steen and this dreamy poem. We’ll see you on the beach – to dance, and swim, and surf, and yoga!
“I’m so thankful for times when I’m barefoot
Because it means I’m somewhere I love,
when I’m surrounded by surf, salt and fresh air
on days I thought I could only dream of.
I’ve learned my favorite shoes are footprints
and to write welcome home on the sand
because rarely do I ever leave a beach
without finding pieces of me in its tides or strand.
My toes take deep breaths in the waves
and seem to laugh when I kick in the foam
I swear my soul writes me a thank you note
when I give my feet a chance to get wet and roam.
It might seem so odd to crave having naked feet
that just want to be buffed and touched by the sand
I guess sometimes it’s just natures way
of holding me in it’s hand.”
