To sea!

I’m always mesmerized by the surface of the sea… 
it has something of an ecstasy, of another reality…
 Every time I visit the sea, I like sitting very close to 
the shore and breathing in its beauty.
 Last Saturday...

I have came across some little sailors...
They took me on a long imaginary,
 fairy journey in which I identified myself 
with them and became a crew member, a pirate, 
a fisherman,a captain, a mermaid…
 It’s almost unbelievable how an accidental, 
insignificant fact can brighten up and bless your day! 
They didn’t pay me the slightest attention and 
followed all their shipping procedures with 
mathematical rigour…they never knew how happy 
they made me and how lucky I felt to have met them 
and shared the pleasures of the sea with them …

 To sea… to sea! The calm is o’er,
The wanton water leaps in sport,
And rattles down the pebbly shore;
The dolphin wheels, the sea-cow snorts,
And unseen mermaids’ pearly song
Come bubbling up, the weeds among.
Fling broad the sail, dip deep the oar:
To sea, to sea! The calm is o’er.
To sea, to sea! Our wide-winged bark
Shall billowy cleave its sunny way,
And with its shadow, fleet and dark,
Break the caved Tritons’ azure day,
Like mighty eagle soaring light
O’er antelopes on Alpine height.
The anchor heaves, the ship swings free,
The sails swell full. To sea, to sea!
                      Thomas Lovell Beddoes 

The dream is over; 
I am like the boat stuck in the sand, 
who knows what the tide will bring…

Wish you a sparkling weekend 
keep trying, 
keep dreaming
and see you soon!
