It was dark, just after sunset
It’s the purity I’ll never forget
It wasn’t too dark, and the water was still warm
I realized you had more character then I let my thoughts form
Stars were out with the soft orange
Laughter and smiles, we never had a shortage
Coming up from a wave, washed up on the board
You couldn’t cut my joy, not even with a sword
Saw a green flash
Soaked in your words, they made a splash
As the sun fully set on the horizon
Nostalgia flies in


It was dark, just after sunset
Fearlessness I’d finally met
It wasn’t too dark, and the water was still warm
So unexpected, your humor hit me like an electric thunderstorm
Stars were out with the soft orange
Our conversation’s memories I started putting in special storage
Coming up from a wave, washed up on the board
Miles away, but connected through this invisible chord
Saw a green flash
And even when our fire turned to ash
As the sun fully set on the horizon
Your appearances in my dreams is not surprising


It was dark, just after sunset
First saw you across the net
It wasn’t too dark, and the water was still warm
Messages turned into conversations considered a swarm
Stars were out with the soft orange
Courage to speak up I no longer had to forage
Coming up from a wave, washed up on the board
Friendship became real, not mind games scored
Saw a green flash
You added in, even when life hit me with a thrash
As the sun fully set on the horizon
One day, our connection will again be rising

    This speaks to me my dear Ace as my former partner and I are about to take a short vacation together in hopes of reconnecting. The most difficult part of my own awakening as been understanding that his is on its own timeliness. I have changed every single aspect of my life and expression of it where as he has now admittedly been stagnant in his. He doesn’t want to lose me so has asked for us to try again. This is how relationships shift and grow, continuing to heal individually and also as a pair. This poem gave me so much hope, I know that my soul is leading me in the direction I need to go🌠🎆💛🙏

      Thank you so much for sharing!!! And I’m thrilled to hear that this poem gave you hope, that seriously makes my day, my heart is so happy!!! I’m glad to hear you guys will be reconnecting, relationships do have their ebbs and flows. I wish you all the best and send you so much love and high vibes through this time…and always, really!!! This piece is about a current relationship of mine, so it makes sense that it spoke to you. I haven’t heard from my best friend in so so long and it kinda worries me. He’s been the only real friend I’ve had, and I miss him. I trust the Universe and hope we’ll tap back into our connection soon, for now the miles away we are just feels so strong 🤪.

      Love you, sis!!! I always love our deep conversations and I am so grateful for all the support you’ve shown me…means the world!!! 🖤

        I knew intuitively that this was an expression of your relationship 😊 I completely understand what it’s like to be cut off from your best friend, I feel my partner is mine too and we have been separated physically now for almost a year living many states apart. The ebbs and flows are how we grow and sail into deeper and more open waters 🌊 I like you with your relationship have seen many a rough sea and a rogue wave or two. We are both finding our way, I believe that Ace which is why the Universe has us experiencing synchronization and reflections. We are all in this big wide world together, teaching out a grasping the hands of one another with love in community. It’s such a gift to know this in our souls and share it with others as we do🤗 All the love shines like a beacon ushering us home💓

        I wholeheartedly resonate with your words here. Thank you for this 🙏🏻, it’s such a comfort to me. You are so right, the ebbs and flows are how we grow, no matter how hard 🤪. YES, I love what you say about the synchronicities, I believe that too. We are all in this together…living, loving, learning, growing, failing and getting back up again and most of all embarking on this journey we call life. Cheers to that beacon of love!!! I love you, sis. It’s made my day connecting with you, I can’t thank you enough. I appreciate you!! And am so thankful for your synchronistic advice!! 🖤🤗
