I’ve always been fascinated by the sea. I’ve always lived in seaside cities, but unfortunately never actually lived next to the sea. I can look at the sea for hours, the waves crashing into the shore. These lines are inspired by that fascination and the hope that someday I will get my wish for a home next to the sea.
By the Sea
Watching the waves crashing on the shore,
Watching the sea spend her debris at our door.
I wonder what lies at her shores, what riches she stores?
She is mercurial in her moods, she is the nurturer to multitudes;
She is calm as a mirror, she is blue, green and azure
When she gets angry, she is tempestuous and boisterous
She is stormy, she is antsy, sometimes screaming like a banshee
She is the source of quiet contemplation, she is my way of relaxation.
I just wish I can watch her forever, but life is not choosy,
My dearest wish is to have a little house by the sea!
