Moon Dance

Moon Dance

Brilliance is your face, illuminating the Celestial Sphere
It stretches her mighty Tide to the shoreline where it retreats
Graciously, they Waltz together through the Night
As conductor, the Moon orchestrates her Wake
Beckoning her to bliss forevermore
Among the vigorous Stars that mark their tireless journey

(c) Hyde Rock



My love, you and I are one. When you see yourself, that’s when you see me.
Your motion is when I caress you, your anger is when I move you, your salt is in my stars.
We are one in the same; there is only a horizon that divides us.
But it is my reflection that I see when I look upon your beauty.
Fear not for my clouds will lower and grace upon your rapids mist.
My rainbow I send will touch your waves.
And I will touch you with my rain, which will rise again when you send it back to me in the sky.

(c) Hyde Rock


What I wouldn’t give
to be
In the Ocean
-it is where I live
To have the Waters rush over me
her Waves raise my body freely
Under the warm Summer Sun
My Spirit becomes One
With the beautiful, mysterious Sea.

I am your Mermaid, sir Captain of the Seas
I await for your agape Love as a Serpent above the angry Rapids
Roaring, rolling over my bare Shoulders, thrusting my Body aloft
Tail thrashing in Air
Respiring, apprehensive to descend, but eager to observe
What awaits me

As the Bay merges with the great Sea
My bare toes sink into her Sands
Swept away into the Sunlight
Eyes squinting through weak Sunglasses

The tide threatens to reach my blanket
I freeze as one often does
Hoping she doesn’t reach my belongings and I
Nonetheless, the outcome is the same… nervous laughter
With relief I’m spared
Noticing others were not
But it’s her warning if I selectly remain
We ante up, she wears a charming poker face
I withdraw only somewhat, allowing myself to tarry near her Shore

Children rolling off the lifeguard’s sandhills
Collecting Sand Crabs in their Pails..
Creating a barrier to defer the waters

Deflected I am, by the glorious Sun and happy People
She must’ve noticed my guard had been lowered
As the Shark stalks his prey
Briskly, she swept across me, and soused my blanket

I fold…

“May the salt never be of tears in your eyes; May the stones be only below your feet; May the clouds pass you quickly by; May the blues only fill your skies; May the sands of your time here, always be.”

~(c)Hyde Rock


“Sinfully th’ October wind blows, insistently th’ rejuvenescence Tide rolls; Desolate sands, eerily cold; Faint footprints as memories we hold. Premature darkness, her sunsets fade fast; How I long to swim in th’ salty water, as I did in days past.”

(My Place In This World)

“So many times I walked along the shore
On a sandy beach
The angry waters crashing (and)
The sun kissing it’s rapids
Blinding my sight

My feet embedded in the sand
Leaving a mark of where I’ve been
A small piece of history
Only for the waters to erase what is behind me
No one noticed but me

Sometimes I look back and don’t understand
Other times I’m glad for this
I pray for this
Wash, wash it all away

Funny thing about the ocean
It’s so powerful in strength
In scent, In sound, In sight
Even in taste
You don’t even have to touch it to notice any of those things
It surrounds you, and you become a part of it

The waters are seemingly endless
Looking upon it’s horizon
It encompasses so much of our world
Yet we take it for granted
Wash, wash me away

So I walk yet again
And sometimes I take steps back into my old
Thinking of it’s comfort
But fear it’s consequence
The waters keep changing, so why can’t I ?

Onward again, many journeys ahead
Many footsteps to lead my way
And I’m sure, many I will leave behind
That wherever it brings me
I’ll surely know then
My place in this world”
