Quarreling with Normal

repost….

Out on a faraway beach
feeling the warm moist wind
blowing against her face,
She became lost navigating
in her own meditation.
~
The waves were slapping
at the shoreline as if quarreling
with the outgoing tide,
They played a perfect accompaniment
to the rhythm of her thoughts,
sashaying their way into
quarreling with normal.
~
She was counting the many times
She had set her feet upon a path
to finding normal.
Now, staring at the moon
She was standing in her own truth,
Where normal had never seemed
to find her.
~
Jolted from her temporary solace,
She contemplated if normal
might not be just a word,
bouncing around in an orb
of complacency,
Something to be abandoned
Rather than quarreled with
or achieved.
~

    When I was young I thought normal was something to be achieved, now I feel it is something to be avoided at all costs. LOL

    Ditto. Normal really is like you said Dianne…
    “waves were slapping
    at the shoreline as if quarreling
    with the outgoing tide,”
    Internal strife and conflict…had I only known this was “normal” before I turned the corner only to face the sharp winds that can be so painful. As always, beautifully written Dianne…so descriptive and real…
