The Heart Takes Flight
Ode to White Rock, British Columbia, my home
by Rowena Susan Wilcox
I ambled the beach ...
You soared the sky ...
We moved together... You and I !
Below speckled stones... lay at my feet...
Above clouds glistened like fresh- fallen snow !
It was a blustery day... and the "White Horses" * rolled high !
I beheld "Your Creation" and gazed and sighed !
The sky was now half blue ... half grey...
As though depicting the duality that day!
The Blue ... the Peace ... the Grey ... the Fight...
The Love ... the Life ... the Dark ... the Night !
But the sun shone through in spite of it all
And lit the " Path " I knew to be " True " !
For " Love " will " Survive" ... and " Loneliness " be " Lost " !
The " Sea gulls " and " I " ... " Soar High ... Soar High " !
[ * " White Horses " : waves ]
