The Sea

This has been rattling around in my head all morning, so I had to stop and write it down before I go crazy! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.

The Sea, the sea, her draw unrelenting
In her depths, voyages of glory and anguish, names written down, never forgotten
Seaching her shores for childhood castles and dreams long washed away
The sun kisses water, the green flash as fish and fowl bow gracefully before her beauty
The pull of wind over sails, the feeling of conquest as you search for distant shores
The smell of fear as waves crash over decks, the wild eyes of sailors set with steely determination
The comfort of the gental sway anchored in the lee of a tropical island
All these things and more abound within the grasp of those who wish it
The Sea, the sea…as she calls out, come to me…

  1. The definition of luck is when preparation and opportunity collide which means if it was luck (which incidentally I don’t believe, I believe, as you know that you are a talented writer) that it was bubbling away in your head and came out when you felt it ready. So its all down to you buddy and I am so enjoying watching you emerge as a writer 🙂
