Reality’s Dream

whales_dream_12237

Floating through the vibrant sky

Watching birds flying by

Clouds above and clouds below

No idea where I will go

Don’t know much about such dreams

Reality’s altered so it seems

Saw a boat pass me without a crew

Alone it rowed as it flew

Then fishes blowing lots of bubbles

A moment I forgot my troubles

Surfer dude with a great big board

Told of places he’d explored

Still on I floated without much care

Wishing only you were there

Dolphins swam and talked with me

All about this great sky sea

A shooting star waltzed with the moon

On the sands of time at noon

Mr. Turtle brought me an umbrella drink

It was on his back, I really think

But not sure I trust my eyes much anymore

Just saw a shark walk on the shore

The crabs and lobsters, urchins and starfish

Told me I could have what I wish

No longer did I want to dream of this sea

Waking up I found I was still me

A mermaid in love with this vast blue ocean

Forever together with much devotion

To feel you gently caress my hair and skin

You push back as I move my fin

Yes, there is no place that I would rather be

Just a mermaid under the sea©

Mystery Of Our Depths

“We are all bodies of water, guarding the mystery of our depths, but some of us have more to guard than others.”~Deborah Smith

A Way Of Life

The beach is my confidant and my heart. It is where I go when I need sweet solace from the troubles of the world. To go and relax, breath in the sea breeze, listen to the lull of the waves, cry of the gulls and be one with nature. My soul yearns for it, desires it, really. To be at the sea, this is a way of life.© ~Mac

I Am Flowing

“And if the earth no longer knows your name, whisper to the silent earth: I am flowing. To the flashing water say: I am.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke

A walk on the beach turned into an amazing view of rippled sand. As the tide heads out pools will slowly trickle and leave these amazing grooved lines back to the sea. The sun captures the zigzags and seashells, making a beautiful scene.

Wreckage

Wreckage

Anchor in the sea below
Darkness has become your tomb.
Waves above tease you with their playing
Reflecting light dances from the moon.

Anchor in the ocean deep
Coral reefs have become your bed.
Seaweed like a blanket caresses
Swimming fish laugh around your head.

Anchor in the sea below
Water has become your fray.
Once a friend to ship and captain
Lost to rust and to decay.

Anchor in the ocean deep
Sandy floors have become your keeper.
Crustaceans creep among your bones
And surely salt has become your reaper.

Sides Of The Sea

“There was a magic about the sea. People were drawn to it. People wanted to live by it, swim in it, play in it, look at it. It was a living thing that as unpredictable as a great stage actor: it could be calm and welcoming, opening its arms to embrace its audience one moment, but then could explode with its stormy tempers, flinging people around, wanting them out, attacking coastlines, breaking down islands…” ~Cecelia Ahern

It always amazes me how beautiful the ocean can be at one moment and how angry and aggressive it can turn the next. Nothing more surprising and sad than to realize the destruction from these horrific storms that come out of the water. Really a “Jekyll and Hyde” of characters is hidden within the sea.

By now most people are aware of this huge hurricane name “Matthew” that has and continues to devastate thee Atlantic. From Cuba, Haiti and the Bahamas, now headed for The States. Florida soon to be hit by a Category 3 to 4, many evacuated or in evacuation mode. Truly a scary event and the worst to hit since 2005.

Living on the coastline of South Carolina, our family has been in preparation for the past few days. Buying water, non-perishable foods, filling gas and propane tanks, as well as buying batteries. Today Hubby and Son have worked on getting the hurricane shutters in place and all lawn items have been moved indoors. They will soon be helping a neighbor do the same.

Thankfully we are outside thee evacuation zones that have been set for our area. These zones are due to not just one’s proximity to the ocean, but also the sea level. We are prayerful that by the time it gets to our area on Saturday it will be a “Category 2” or even less. Next will just be to ‘hunker down’ and perhaps some family board games or movie marathons (if we don’t lose power).

So much unpredictability, such is the way of weather and the sea.
