A place of wonder throughout the years


A sea of emerald green

Crystallized and pristine

Saturates my thirsty skin

Elevating my sinking chin

Each pulsating wave

Gently tugs and pulls

Affirming how the sea

Is tethered to my soul

Boosted up upon each surge

Then dragged easily back down

I endeavor to be buoyant

Since the fallout is to drown

The ocean feels alive

Splashing against my bones

Lifting me effortlessly up

I float freely on its sparkling throne

The refreshment of each wave

Quenches my playful desire

And soon the tide rushes in

Raising me even higher

The sound of the churning foam

Rings loudly within my ears

Speaking softly to my heart

A place of wonder throughout the years

    Never been. I hate water, so I’m not too upset, but still…

  8. Wow really? I think I might possibly die if I didn’t think I’d see it again. Feel like my heart and soul reside there.

    Yeah. It’s that serious. Dunno why though.

  10. All of these things stem from childhood fears usually. I’m particularly scared of spiders after having a few run-ins with black widows.
