"The Ocean And Me"

The  sudden ocean  breeze seemed to have come out of no where!
First in was in front of me
then it was behind me!
The wind tickled my whiskers
It almost blew me over!
 Along with the wind,
 the gentle roaring tides were calling to me.
  I began to run as fast as my little legs would go!
 I ran and ran and then,
 I spun around with my ears flapping in the wind,
 and I raced back!
I ran along side the tracks that my paws had left in the sand.
 I ran faster than the oceans tides!
 I felt so good!
 My nose had salty kisses on it from the fresh ocean air!
 My paws had squishy sand between my toes.
 Ohh,   it felt so good!
 As I gazed into the tide pools, I saw little fish, crabs
and anemones, and I saw my friend Star- the starfish!
 I blew kisses to her!
I came to visit my ocean friends.
Yes, this is where they live- at my ocean.
I knew that Puff the Sea horse was here somewhere!
 I will look over here!
  Sea Birds were sitting sleepily on rocks as the tides circled around them.
The Sea Birds were enjoying the moment!
Sea Gulls were wide awake
they swooped over my head!
  And then magically  a pod of Gray whales and their calves
leaped from the sea- like a dance.
 They were  migrating to Alaska for summer feeding.
  I listened to the whales songs, as their voices sang in harmony.
The oceans voice  was a soft hummm today.

I thought about how the waves flow onto the sandy shore
 and then flow back out to sea.
I thought about how the ocean never sleeps.

As I listened quietly, a peaceful feeling hugged  me,
 and I remembered Puffs words of wisdom from a year ago.
  His words whispered through my mind as I remembered  what he said.
 "Remember that those that are gone from us live in our hearts forever.
 And when we are afraid  or sad, we can make the fears and sadness go away when we humm like the ocean."
I know Puff will share more wisdom with me!
I will listen for his words!
It's important to hummm every day.
And sometimes we can hummm to someone else.

I see Puff!
And now I will run as fast as I can, as Puff's magic bubble comes rolling up onto the seashore!
I JUST KNEW I would see Puff!
Nitey nite

Tweedles, I am so happy you're reunited with the ocean. Enjoy every moment!


Hey Tweedles,
That feeling happiness as you were walking along the beach is called FREEDOM... when you allow yourself to simply be yourself and express yourself. Tweedles, I love the way you express yourself. Hold on to that freedom.
Sending lotsaluv

Sandy said...

Little Tweedles, I am so happy to hear about your adventure to the ocean. I bet you could smell a hundred different things out there. I wonder what the birds thought about you running up and down the beach! They proably said, "There's Little Tweedles enjoying our part of the world. Glad to see you again, Tweedles." Kisses!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

What a beautiful and soul-filling experience! Thanks for enriching us all with your sharing. And especially thanks for the kind healing words you sent my sister.

sashacleo said...

a true puglet, indeed! who loves the waves and the feel of the sand between her paws. we've never actually tried swimming in the ocean, but like to chase the waves!

chicamom85 said...

Tweedles, you have made me so happy. I could feel them...yes honestly I could feel the waves on my feet and I could smell the salt air. You are so gifted with describing your adventures and all I need to do is close my eyes and Mommy reads it to me and I am there with you. I am so glad you got to see Star and Puff was there. What a day you had, what an adventure. I have never been to the ocean, but now I feel like I have. You tell me the best bedtime stories and now I will sleep and hope I dream that you and I are sleeping on the beach on a soft towel and listening to the gentle waves with our Mommies.

Loveys Sasha

p.s. sweet dreams my sweet pal, I love me my Tweedles

Your story of the ocean is so peaceful and beautiful. I'm glad that you thought about your friend Puff and saw his magic bubble. Here's to all the sea creatures who were blessed by a visit by Tweedles.

Tweedles & Mom's what a beautiful place to go for an adventure!! I think that the beach is a place of healing, joy and peace...The salty, clean fresh air and the sun truly embraces us in its warmth....There is so much to learn from the sea...Do you think it doesn't sleep because it has so much to tell us?

The Thuglets said...

Tweedles we loved your visit to the ocean and your beautiful words. We always are left with lovely feelings after visiting you.
We hope Puffs magic bubble stayed a while.

hey Tweedles,

I love your visits to the ocean. Since I am not a water dog (all snow, thank you very much!) I can live vicariously through you, learning and feeling the wonders of the waters. I am so furry happy you saw Puff. Puff gave you such incredible wisdom, even I will carry it in my heart. And you give me such incredible joy as I read your wonderful, fantastical adventures.
