A Rock just for you, from Dover Beach
Take some time
to consider its detail,
its character, its uniqueness.
What some might consider a flaw,
I recognize a marvelous rarity.
Just like you. Just like me.
There are millions more on that spellbinding beach,
calling out to you. Waiting.
But only a handful will be chosen.
Until then, may the splendor of this gem
fill your mind, and embolden your heart.
Powering your dreams.
(A poem I wrote for Chad, accompanying a rock I retrieved from Dover during my own swim,
for his birthday in 2014. It's intended magic worked, and he swam it successfully on Sept 20th, 2015)
|Chad and I walking along Dover beach the day after his crossing. Unreal experience. Like a kid at Disneyland.|
