She’s Painting A Picture

She’s painting a picture

Where the mountain meets the ocean

I’m taking a picture of her

Where the mountain meets the ocean

It’s a place where one’s eyes go

Two natural events connecting, peacefully

Unity of the painter and the photographer

Acrylic and digital, knowing strangers

In that one honest moment

The lion and lamb come together

When the sand smiles up and observes the vista

The sun glistening off crystal waters

We become admirers, comrades in art

People of the same muse

Subtle, similar range of colors

Free to express but never really satisfied

Where the mountain meets the ocean.

  1. I wish I could reply on your article, but I had to let you know that I completely understand about your viewpoint on the ocean when it meets the mountains. I have a similar spot with the cliffs that meet the ocean in Corona del Mar that I always go to. It’s my “retreat center” for the afternoon. During the summer, I go and find my “usual” spot to relax, swim, knit and read. At one point, it was the spot I went to the find relief and feel God’s presence in all of it. I felt the rhythm of the waves that reminds me of the ebb and flow of life. It was relieving to know that life can be like the ocean tides and I can go back for that reminder to realize that life doesn’t remain the same. In the quiet of the waves, I hear God’s voice reminding me of this and the phrase (when I’m down), “this too shall pass…rest in Me.” You and the Painter find this also when you see His beauty of the ocean, the mountains and the changing colors of His handiwork.

    Enjoy it all and be blessed that vision as you have been to my family.
