Diamonds on the Water–Barbara Stott

The warm Sun,
kissing the day,
offers its loving touch
to the wild waves
emerging from the Pacific.

My gaze rests on the horizon,
where the blue waters shimmer,
and the solar blessings sparkle
on the undulating Grandmother,
her body wide in receiving.


Barbara S. Stott’s lifelong journey has inspired others through her book Swimming Lessons, and in her teaching, tarot readings, and shamanic sandtray journeying. Her desk has an ocean view in Lincoln City, and this muse inspires her joie de vivre for north coast exploration. Photo from Cape Kiwanda by
