Go with me to the sea!
To the smells and sounds:
salty air where I can breathe,
listen to the halyards’ familiar chime
against metal masts in the breezes
that froth the waves,
whose familiar sounds lull the weary.
Stand on the rocks.
Watch the gulls wheeling,
lifting wings, floating above us
singing familiar calls
In the air, the deep waters, boats
all in motion – under blue sky
Travel with me to taste the air, the light.
Where water and wind combine –
let the waves move against the body,
wade in to swim the currents
that buoy and carry us,
in a boat of sounds, sights, and smells.
Bound no longer to rocky ground
by our mortality.
Ah, the sea, the sweet sea,
When I see grass fields waving
my heart floats freed
To days of sunshine, sandy shores and sea.
Ah, the sweet sea
Go with me!
Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.
Have a good week wherever you may find yourself.
