What Is Simple Anymore

What is simple anymore
Long paddles down rocky shorelines
Light winds and little waves
Cedar roots clinging to life
Struggling to survive
Solitude and nature
Strength and struggles
Clinging to life, clinging to hope
A piece of bone or pottery
Long discarded
A long time ago
Washed smooth
A once jagged edge
Worn down by time
Resting in the sand

I love retirement and my trips into nature on my walks. After working stressful jobs for the County for 34 years - I enjoy my little daily trips even more.

Having a sail along a shoreline to relax is great .Your mind wonders also, nature keeps our memories popping up. Nice melancholy thoughts. Thanks for sharing. SM wave
l love this. A family member was telling me about a boat I should look into with a motor laugh
I don't believe they get it. Understand the slow peaceful journey of kayaking. I also like to look for things that have washed up on the shores. Some I take (not many) some I leave for another to pick up and enjoy its beauty. As you said usually it is a piece of this and a piece of that.
