Sitting, reflecting on seascapes of the world
Brrrrrrrrr…… so uninviting other than to the eye
Yippee………wave caught so exhilarating
Hot, bothered China Beach gives small respite
yet wandering on rocky coastlands tranquility is found
and perhaps a sighting of one that is at home in the sea no matter what the weather.
Not so at home the ship is run aground as the sea shows off its force.
It’s colour changes from deepest blue
to bluey green
and back to tropical blue
but sadly in some parts floating particles and general filth give colour that is abhorrent and should you swim, don’t open your mouth lest it fill with slime and stuff like porridge.
But as the sun goes down my reflection ends as I think on Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s words:
“My soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me.”
