You Are the Wilderness

You are the wilderness in me,

uncharted and untamed.

Your tenderness crashes like a river around my heart

and your words spike the mountains of my heartbeat.

You are the freedom of the ocean

whispering inside my wanderlust soul.

You help me discover things about myself

like paths not yet taken through the trees of my past.

You touch every piece of me with an unfathomable love

like the sun caressing the first new growth of spring

and coaxing it from the earth.

I come into my own,

wild and free,

new life breathed into me

by a love I’ve never known before.

My Mexico Obsession: Splash Pictures

While I was in Mexico for a week I became slightly obsessed with standing out on a rock wall that jutted out into the ocean near our resort’s beach and taking pictures of the splashes created when the waves hit the rocks. This obsession resulted in me coming home with over 500 “splash pictures.” These ones are some of my favorites. It was really hard to pick favorites.
