Dear Soul Surfer,
Seeker of adventure and exhilaration,
I long to serve you . . .
as you boldly slice through life's
salty rawness with your chisel
of consciousness and light.
Dear Soul Surfer, I long to watch you . . .
dance to the rhythm of the tides,
and rise up over and over again
onto the furthest edge of your growth
before it fizzles back into foam.
Dear Soul Surfer, I long to feel you . . .
grapple with the oceanic currents
of our vast collective unconscious,
invigorated and humbled
by its power and depth.
Dear Soul Surfer, I long to celebrate . . .
your delight in intimately connecting
with nature and mystery,
enduring endless lessons in balance,
in holding on and in letting go.
Because, dear Soul Surfer,
YOU are ME
and I am YOU
Surfer and ocean, darkness and light,
crest and trough, ebb and flow.
My life, my soul, my Source.
