Locked in manic-tower thoughts,
I’ve found a walk beside the ocean,
beach-combing along the sunset’s
to be the best of Earth’s solutions
to the bursting of my mind’s latch
opened to a staircase
leading back into my body,
spiraled down into the sand around my feet.
And in breathing in the love of nature
I am rescued
from the tangles in my sanity.
