Gratitude for What Is Given

The waves and the wind have a kinship in that cove I’ve not seen anywhere else. There’s a place out on the water I call Salt Taste, because of how the wind whips and water spits around the rocks. The wind spins past the headland, and the waves lurch and boil. Wind and wave is a single principle in that spot. When I smell salt there, I understand. You taste what’s given, and be grateful.
