A House by the Sea

A House by the Sea…audio by author, Kimberly M. King

Some days, I’m telling you,
there’s a house that’s calling me—
with iris and daffodils and a view to the sea.
Some days, I’m telling you,
there’s a room that’s calling me—
with books and a wingback and a hot cuppa tea.
Some days, I’m telling you,
there’s a voice that’s calling me—
it sounds like the wind, weaving grace in the trees.
And I sigh and I know that I can not yet go.
And I let that sigh say what fails to find words:
that there is now, is inside of me, 
and one day, one day, that sigh will flower
and I will run free, pure spirit alive
in a house by the sea.
And I will stop and rest there
and I will weep there with the waves
and leave the doors wide open
and let it all, let it all
let it all, let everyone, let every thing
flow through and find place there
in harmony with the grace there
in that house by the sea.
Where the light is the love
and the warmth is the love
and the wind is the love
and the tide is the love
and the daffodils and the iris bow
in their beauty to the beauty
that can not be contained,
reserved, restrained, or deserved.
The beauty is the love here, the song here
made here by the being here,
here within, here around,
here someday forever,
with the others, welcoming
the unrolling of maps showing
tales of treasure and treacherous passage.
All of which brings each and all
home to an open door, a cuppa what pleases,
and enough of what each one needs.
