I adore being near the ocean..I have only been once--as I live in Indiana. But it was a magical experience. I plan to go back next March for my honeymoon!


The Ocean

I long for the sea to nip at my feet

to wrap me up in it's cool arms

I feel these ancient memories,

tearing at my core

I long to near the water

evermore

I long for the place

where the

winds and the tide tear at the shore

but in the twilight of my dreams...

the fire rages on

oh Teala, this is powerful in its revealing of the longing for change. The ocean certainly does that! Wonderful imagery and then the end.....reality.

Ah, the romance of the sea, from my window i can see it, in all its beauty or its fury, a great place for a honeymoon by the way. Beautifully put.

long to be near...

i wouldn't mind being near the sea myself, nearest to me is a 45 minute train journey!
