Stepping On The Shore - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Wind and sea,
Leaves me adrift.
With this warmth...
Sitting in my heart so grounded.

And I have found a storm outside,
I ride.
Knowing my faith,
Smooths the waves.

And the clouds and thunder fade.
And the Sun comes to hold me close.

Stepping onto the shore.
I feel the sand...
Beneath my feet.
I am safe,
And at peace.
Released from fear...
I am home!
