A Wish for Jessie Upon High School Graduation

What we wish for you

is simply this: the kind

of happiness found

where sea oats begin

and dunes

and the cry of the seas

over waves too huge to ride.

Where dolphins leap

and horizons meet the sun,

here, in these places

where we dream

of shelter and those

we love, we wish

you sunrises

sea gulls

loves too vast to hold today

oceans to give you sunsets

and freshness every morning.
